The Aged Care Sector Committee Diversity Sub-group is developing an action plan. It’s designed to address the specific barriers and challenges faced by older people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse groups. This relates specifically to when accessing aged care.
The action plan will sit under the Aged Care Diversity Framework. This was launched by the Hon Ken Wyatt, Minister for Aged Care and Minister for Indigenous Health, in December 2017.
To inform the action plan, the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Council of Australia has been consulting with a range of stakeholders.
