 ACCC resources for consumers accessing aged care

After advocating for greater information on Australian Consumer Law in aged care and working with the  Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) on the project to develop them, we are excited  to announce the ACCC Home care – know your consumer rights and Home care services – Know your business rights and obligations under the competition and consumer law brochures are set to be released on 16 July.

The ‘Consumer Directed Aged Care’ project materials are modelled on the ACCC’s –  consumers with disability work.

Each of the state and territory COTA was asked to nominate someone to ‘test’ the materials and we would  like to extend our thanks to two of our Community Team volunteers, Graham Jackson and Judith Chapman.
