Our Messages

As a Council, we understand we must build trust and confidence in our leadership of the industry, through open and honest communication, providing a line of sight for the workforce, as well as older people, their families and the broader community to our strategic priorities and goals.

Looking to the future, the aged care industry requires key enabling infrastructure to support improvements in workforce capability, care quality and effectiveness.

This absence of well-supported, cohesive infrastructure – and poor connectivity with the health, disability and other adjacent sectors such as education and training – poses a significant and continuous risk to the efficiency, and importantly to the quality, of aged care services.

The Council is committed to cross-portfolio collaboration – and has mapped stakeholders critical to achieving our objectives. We also acknowledging this broad level of engagement will require an intensive effort, and must be issues driven.



The Council aims to ensure the community understands how the Council, Industry and Government are working together to support the aged care workforce and deliver quality care to older Australians. Podcasts are one way in which the Council can promote its message and respond to some of the key questions the community wants answered.
