Volunteers in aged care consultation open

The Australian Department of Health and Aged Care is seeking feedback from aged care volunteers, volunteer managers, and aged care providers to shape the future of aged care volunteering across the country.

In a statement, the Department said volunteers were essential to the well-being of socially isolated older people and complement the paid aged care workforce in Austrlaia’s aged care sector.  

As part of the Australian Government’s response to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, the Department is seeking the views of:   

  • all people who volunteer in the aged care sector;
  • all those who work with volunteers in their role as a volunteer manager or as an aged care provider.
