Welcome back to our NewsDigest platform, for 2019.
The year has opened up new opportunities and resources, improving access and processes for service providers in our industry.
The Australian Government’s new Aged Care Quality Standards have been developed through significant consultation and co-design with the aged care sector. From 1 July 2019, the new Standards will apply to all Commonwealth subsidised aged care services including residential care, home care, flexible care, services under the Commonwealth Home Support Programme. Also this year, Settlement Services International (SSI) launch their much-anticipated Disability Hub – providing accessible, relevant information on the NDIS in 14 languages.
