Government funded services

Governments are under pressure to provide the services that their communities need – balancing limited resources available with increasing demands for services and supports that improve outcomes.

ACIL Allen advises all levels of Government and non-government organisations with specific expertise in education, justice and public safety, research and development, health and human services, and transport and infrastructure.

How ACIL Allen can help you

We provide departments, agencies and organisations with detailed research, analysis, advice and capability building across policy development, program design, evaluation and regulation.

Our areas of public service expertise include:

Community services

The needs of consumers and carers should always be at the centre of service design and delivery. Putting people at the centre means providing integrated services that are responsive to changing circumstances and placing increased focus on early intervention and prevention to achieve better outcomes.


Over the past two decades, successive governments have initiated major reforms to Australia’s early childhood education, school and training systems to increase levels of educational participation and attainment. These reforms have been designed to boost Australia’s productivity and workforce participation levels and to address social and inter-generational disadvantage. They have required major reforms to education systems, services, schools and institutions.

Health & ageing

The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened the challenges facing Australia’s health and aged care systems. Demand for mental health services has increased dramatically causing strain on a system unable to meet the community’s needs. Physical health, mental health, and aged care service providers all face acute workforce shortages.


Access to the judicial process can be a significant challenge; evidence suggests this issue is widespread amongst the most disadvantaged Australians.
