Engagement of the HACC sector in Victoria in significant changes to policy and practice towards an Active Service Model. 3. Identification of models of service delivery that are applicable in Victoria, including identification of suitable target groups within the HACC target population, having regard to how HACC operates in Victoria and the aims of the Active Service Model Project. 4.
