COTA (Council on the Ageing) and OPAN (the Older Person’s Advocacy Network) are holding consultations in August and September 2023 to provide a platform for older people, families and carers to share their knowledge and insights in relation to two upcoming Aged Care reforms:
- the new Aged Care Act and the rights and other foundational aspects it contains, and
- funding principles for a sustainable aged care system.
As human rights-based organisations, COTA and OPAN want to ensure a diverse range of perspectives are heard – across all age groups. We will reflect these perspectives in our submissions to the Australian Government.
You can also provide feedback directly to the Australian Government by completing a survey or making a submission.
You can find further information or register for consultations via the OPAN website here
