The Guides to Social Policy Law is maintained by the Department of Social Services (DSS) on behalf of DSS, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C), the Department of Education and Training, the Department of Employment and the Attorney-General's Department (AGD).

The Assistance for Isolated Children Scheme Guidelines and the ABSTUDY Policy Manual are only available in DOCX and PDF format. The other Guides have been designed as web publications (HTML). They are updated frequently and contain many links within the Guides site to assist the reader. They are not available in a single electronic file or in paper format.

If you have a compliment, suggestion or enquiry about the website or the policy it contains, please visit the DSS - Feedback - Compliments, Complaints and Enquiries webpage.
