Description: 

This action plan supports the Aged Care Diversity Framework.

The plan:

  • guides providers on how to deliver more culturally appropriate services to older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • helps providers to work out what actions they can take
  • recognises that each provider will start from a different place and operate in a different context

Providers can work through the 3 levels of actions in the plan:

  • foundational
  • next steps
  • leading the way

They can decide which actions are most relevant to their organisation by talking to their staff and the people they provide services to.
