The true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.
We’re a group that cares deeply about the aged care workforce in Australia. We passionately believe that the best people, armed with the right resources, are the key to the best care. As the first leadership group of its kind in Australia’s aged care industry, we work with industry, government, workers, older Australians and their families to ensure workers are set up for success. Which means the right support structures and staffing levels are in place, and workers are appropriately paid and trained to provide outstanding care, in a diverse range of settings.
There are many stakeholders – government departments, peak bodies, groups and individuals – invested in better aged care across Australia. We’re the force that brings everybody together to drive change and inspire excellence.
Our core focus is on the aged care workforce – the people on the front line of looking after our older Australians. We want to transform the capacity and capability of the workforce so these talented, compassionate and hard-working people feel valued and supported. A key part of this is providing guidance on training, skills, fair workloads and fair pay.
We also work closely with the care providers who employ the aged care workforce, supplying insight and guidance on recruiting and retaining great staff.
Overall, we connect all of the key people and groups who come together to provide the level of care our older Australians and their families need and deserve.
