A new Charter of Aged Care Rights for people receiving Australian Government funded aged care services started on 1 July 2019.

We have attached information for CHSP providers about:

  • your responsibilities under the Charter
  • resources to help you, including a letter that you could use (or adapt) to inform your existing consumers about the Charter.

Further information, including timeframes for other aged care programs, is available on the department's website.
