The Australian Government recently announced a $1.6 billion cut to the aged care sector in the 2016–17 budget. This recent cut joins the $3.1 billion cuts that have already been made to aged care since 2014.
We want to reverse the cuts and are standing together with ACSA (Aged & Community Services Australia) and LASA (Leading Aged Services Australia) in the fight to protect our most vulnerable society members, our elderly loved ones.
