To ensure the voice of senior Australians is kept at the heart of the Australian Government’s $17.7 billion aged care reforms, a Council of Elders is being established as an important part of new governance arrangements.

The role of the Council will be to provide consumer centred advice, based on consultation with senior Australians, to the Minister for Health and Aged Care, Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care Services and the Department of Health.

For more information on the Council of Elders and how to nominate, visit the department's website.

Nominations close 15 October 2021.
