Western Sydney Community Forum (WSCF) has organized a one-day conference to help further unpack the nine destinations featured in the Aged Care Roadmap (or the Roadmap).

The Roadmap, completed in March 2016, was developed by the Aged Care Sector Committee. The Committee was tasked by the former Assistant Minister for Social Services, Senator the Hon Mitch Fifield, to develop the document to advise on future directions for aged care. The Roadmap presents the Aged Care Sector Committee’s views on the short, medium and long-term actions required to transform the current aged care system into a sustainable, consumer-driven and market-based system. The Roadmap is “intended to generate discussion across the aged care sector and government regarding future reforms to aged care”.

The conference is designed for community aged care service providers as well as relevant stakeholders from other services and sectors.

Since the budget announcement on Tuesday night, I have been reflecting on what all this means for the community and human services industry, and more importantly for the people of Western Sydney that we support. On budget night, I saw a shift in the national narrative with the Government’s approach to people experiencing vulnerabilities. I saw a shift in how income support and rental assistance was viewed, that it is a security safety net for times when people are in need and at times of crisis.
