The consultation period on the draft new Aged Care Act has been extended to Friday 8 March 2024

Our consultation on the draft Act opened on 14 December 2023. 

Since then, we’ve heard from people who use aged care services, people who deliver these services and work in aged care, and people with an interest in the sector. 

Many people have also asked for more time to review the draft Act and provide feedback on this important change to aged care. 

In response, the Australian Government has extended the consultation period. This will give people more opportunity to contribute. 

The new Act will impact everyone connected to aged care so it’s important that you get involved and have your say. You can: 

Consultation closes at 7:00 pm (AEDT) on Friday 8 March 2024
