AAG and ATSIAAG’s submission to the Royal Commission
AAG has now submitted its submission into the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, as has AAG’s ATSIAAG (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ageing Advisory Group). AAG’s submission provided guidance through a conceptual framework, that aimed to strategically structure and prioritise thinking, discussion and action for the reform of services and other support for older people. Whilst ATSIAAG focussed on what can be done for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.
Via a Thursday Three article in early July, AAG Members were given the opportunity to comment and provide feedback on AAG’s draft submission to the Royal Commission. Members of ATSIAAG and Friends of ATSIAAG were given a similar opportunity for ATSIAAG’s submission. Members provided excellent feedback to the drafts, both in terms of positive support for the approach to the submission and informed feedback, much of which was incorporated into the final version AAG thanks its members for this contribution, as well as the Board members and staff engaged in its development that was ably facilitated by Incite Information.
The interim report of the Royal Commission will be provided by 31 October 2019 and the final report by 30 April 2020.
