Action Plan Online Consultations - Aged Care Diversity Framework

The new Aged Care Diversity Framework is high-level document that provides guidance to service providers, consumers, government and peak bodies on how to adequately and meaningfully address the specific needs of all people with diverse characteristics and life experiences. It acts as an overarching structure, with 3 key components - The Action Plans, all of which are being developed through countless hours of face to face consultations with community, consumers and providers. Additionally, there are online surveys taking place and input from relevant people is highly sought.

The 3 Action Plans and organisations conducting consultations are
• Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples- Victoria Community Controlled Health Organisation & Institute for Urban Indigenous Health
• Culturally or Linguistically Diverse peoples- Federation of Ethnic Communities' Council Australia
• Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex peoples- Silver Rainbow (online consultation now completed)
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Action Plan

The Action Plan survey is open now and closes on 26 February.
