Our remit is to provide a unified body to oversee, coordinate and sequence the implementation of the 14 Strategic Actions in Australia’s Aged Care Workforce Strategy ‘A Matter of Care’.
Whilst delivering on ‘A Matter of Care,’ The Council will also adapt its work in light of the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety which largely support the work of the Council.
The Council’s vision is to transform the capacity and capability of the aged care workforce so workers feel valued and supported to deliver consistently high-quality care to older Australians.
The Council’s purpose is to galvanise effort across the sector and governments to build and equip the aged care workforce to deliver the care that older people, their families and carers expect.
As we work towards our vision, we reinforce and promote six core goals:
The Council’s Strategic Plan sets out our remit, direction, and goals and the steps we will take to oversee and sequence the implementation of the national aged care workforce strategy.
Meet the Council

The Council brings together, for the first time, aged care provider CEOs, an employee representative and a consumer representative – who have come together to lead structural change across the industry.
The Aged Care Workforce Council is a registered charity.
