More than 330 people logged in to our 10th Annual Public Forum on 4 November. Reaching Towards Success – Closing the door to aged care for young people discussed the progress being made to end the need for younger people to live in aged care, as well as the barriers that remain.
Participants across the country heard from the Minister for the NDIS, Senator Linda Reynolds, Australia’s Disability Discrimination Commissioner, Dr Ben Gauntlett, policy makers and sector professionals. Andrew spoke about the challenges of living as a younger person in aged care and Paulene gave a passionate account of her successful move into her own SDA apartment.
