ROYAL COMMISSION UPDATE
In September Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a Royal Commission into Aged Care.
The commission’s interim report is to be provided by 31 October 2019.
CEO Luke Bo’sher and policy manager George Taleporos met with Royal Commissioner Lynelle Briggs and her team in November. We are very pleased to report that young people in residential aged care and the issues related to this group are a high and early priority for the Commissioner.
We talked to the Commissioner about the importance of providing a range of options for people to tell their stories, and will be working closely with the Royal Commission to support young people to have their say.
If you or a family member would like to have your say please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates, contact us directly or you can contact the Royal Commission by visiting: agedcare.royalcommission.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx
