Women in Need (IWiN) invite you to attend a focus group to seek views on the preparedness of the aged care sector in meeting the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) older Australians (aged 65 and above). Tea/coffee will be served and free parking is available on site.
- Saturday, 6 May 2017, 3pm – 4.30pm
- Belconnen Labor Club, Chandler Street, Belconnen.
IWiN are particularly interested in your thoughts, as an individual or carer, on the following questions:
- has the aged care sector been adequately supported to date to deliver CALD inclusive services?
- what are the key issues you think that still need to be addressed?
If you agree to participate in the focus group, your views will be summarised and integrated into a submission by IWiN to the Federal Department of Health and Ageing. The submission will inform the development of the Department’s Diversity Framework (replacing the National CALD Aged Care Strategy) and a CALD Action Plan to sit under it.
