Have your say on the future of aged care

Main Content

In August and September, help the Council on the Ageing (COTA) Australia and the Older Persons Advocacy Network (OPAN) inform the Australian Government of your views on two major reforms:

  • the new Aged Care Act and the rights and other foundational aspects it contains, and
  • funding principles for a sustainable aged care system.

Advocare is supporting these two consultations in August and September 2023, one in Perth and the other in Bunbury, that will provide a platform for older people, families, carers and people of all ages interested in the future of aged care to share their knowledge and insights.

To have your say about the future of aged care, you can:

  • register for in-person consultation forums across Australia, where you will have the
    opportunity to provide feedback in a safe and inclusive setting
  • share your views on the future funding of aged care in a COTA/OPAN Aged Care Funding Principles Survey

People who cannot attend a session in-person, including those who live in regional, rural and remote areas, can register for an online consultation forum.

You can also provide your feedback directly to the Australian Government via surveys and submissions.
