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 have deep expertise across Australian and international jurisdictions. Our consultants have worked within and for government and non-government organisations.  

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

There is greater recognition that our most vulnerable citizens require support services to be delivered in a way that is well-coordinated and responsive to changing circumstances, with the needs of consumers at the centre of decision making. Putting people at the centre of service development and responses is driving an increased focus on earlier 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

Australia’s healthcare system is responding to a wide variety of challenges, including rapid population growth in some areas where services struggle to meet demand, while in other areas population decline means viability is a key concern for service providers. Rapidly changing technology provides new opportunities but also raises training and investment issues.


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

Transport & infrastructure

Our experience in the transport and infrastructure sector includes all modes of transport. ACIL Allen's clients are transport users, infrastructure providers, transport operators, banks, engineering companies and government agencies.
