We work collaboratively with other government departments to ensure a whole-of-government approach is taken in achieving the Premier’s vision for South Australia, as a place where people and business thrive.

Our staff work across a number of business areas in support of the government’s priorities.

In addition, we provide:

  • policy development in collaboration with other agencies
  • Aboriginal community support and advice
  • advice to the government about multicultural affairs
  • arts and cultural services
  • veterans support and services
  • whole-of-government communications.

As the chief agency for the Premier, we have a significant role to play in promoting Aboriginal Reconciliation and employment diversity. We are also a White Ribbon Accredited Workplace.
