Consumer Health Advisory Group
Your Community voice in our Health Service
Community Health Advisory Groups are established in Victoria to increase consumer, carer and community participation in public health services. The Community Health Advisory Group has two critical roles:
To provide direction and leadership in relation to the integration of consumer, carer and community views into all levels of health service operations, planning and policy development
To advocate to the board on behalf of the community, consumers and carers.

To provide two way communication between the health service and the wider community
To have CHAG members who are a true reflection of our wider community.
