Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Aged Care Master Plan 2014-2034
In December 2013 Minister Fifield and the Hon Warren Entsch MP announced that an Aged Care Master Plan would be developed for the Torres Strait. This was later expanded to include the Northern Peninsula Area. The Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Aged Care Master Plan 2014-34 was developed by Deloitte Touch Tohmatsu for the Department of Social Services, following consultation with the local community.
The Master Plan has been endorsed by the Mayors of the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council, the Torres Shire Council and the Torres Strait Island Regional Council, and the Chair of the Torres Strait Regional Authority.
