The ability to act as first points-of-contact, together with knowledge of local resources, were key strengths of municipal welfare departments. A third function of municipal welfare services was crisis intervention, which included emergency financial relief, crisis housing and child care, and availability to local emergency services. It also included after hours availability by some services. For example, the WGSWG advertised 24 hour availability in the telephone book, local information directories and council information sheets.

This partnership model was replicated many times over the years and was predominant in rural areas. It encouraged small municipalities, with limited budgets, to share the expense of providing a variety of human services and appointing personnel. Unlike the South Melbourne experience, which had full council support, in West Gippsland the decision to become involved in this new venture was not unanimously supported. The Shire of Narracan indicated that it did not wish to participate, with a majority of its councillors expressing the view that social welfare was a matter for State Government funding and execution.

The inclusion of the municipal welfare worker on inter-departmental committees of councils and hospitals provided an opportunity to acquaint other professional disciplines with the new role of municipal welfare services and enhanced the concept of local human services co-operation and co-ordination. Externally, close community contact provided a platform for helping local people better understand their communities and, as a consequence, develop more socially-aware citizens. Attendance by municipal welfare workers at public meetings provided an important means of sourcing a community’s volunteer pool.
