The Minister for Aged Care, the Hon Ken Wyatt AM, MP, has launched the Aged Care Diversity Framework.
The Framework will help the aged care sector ensure that older people receive aged care services appropriate to their diverse needs.
Under the Framework, three action plans are being developed to address the specific barriers and challenges faced by:
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
- culturally and linguistically diverse communities
- people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Intersex (LGBTI).
