Aged Care Diversity Framework

The Framework is a high-level document that provides guidance to service providers, consumers, government and peak bodies on how to adequately address the specific needs of all people with diverse characteristics and life experiences.

The design of the Framework ensures that Aged Care embraces diversity and is truly inclusive of all people. The Framework follows on from the National LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care Strategy which completed in June 2017. The initial Strategy was developed with key recommendations from the National Roundtable on LGBTI Ageing and Aged Care, formed of LGBTI organisations and community leaders. In the review of the Strategy, respondents strongly stated that the goals should continue in future aged care reforms, such as the Aged Care Diversity Framework which launched on Dec 6, 2017 by the Hon Minister Ken Wyatt in Canberra.
