SydWest Multicultural Services joins campaign for better aged care services

SydWest Multicultural Services joins campaign for better aged care services

SydWest has joined a campaign to advocate for comprehensive reform of the aged care system in the aftermath of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.

In the lead up to this year’s Federal Budget 2021 on Tuesday 11 May, peak body Australian Aged Care Collaboration (AACC) and its member organisations are calling for increased funding for aged care and a longer term, comprehensive aged care plan.

The AACC has submitted a 15-point plan of reform to government focusing on a number of priority areas.

They include access and choice, human rights, transparency, sustainability and a strong focus on a larger and better trained workforce.

SydWest CEO Elfa Moraitaki said aged care is everyone’s business.
“For our multicultural communities, equal access to services is a priority.

“We recognise the right for every older Australian regardless of cultural background, location and means to access services and supports based on their needs.

“We’ve had the royal commission and now we have its recommendations. It is now time to act.

“I’ve signed the petition and I urge you to as well. Together we can help make aged care a priority in Australia.”
