Aged Care Diversity Framework action plans

Page last updated: 14 February 2019

Action plans have been developed under the Aged Care Diversity Framework to assist government and aged care service providers to address specific barriers and challenges faced by older people with diverse characteristics and life experiences.

The action plan for older people with diverse characteristics and life experiences presents actions common to all older people. If you are an aged care provider, this document can help you think about how you can make your services more inclusive and culturally safe for the community in which you operate. You can then read the following three action plans for actions specific to particular groups.

The action plan for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples presents actions address specific barriers and challenges faced by this group. It includes case studies, links to existing resources, and a separate consumer-focused document.

The action plan for older people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds presents actions address specific barriers and challenges faced by this group. It includes case studies, links to existing resources, and a separate consumer-focused document.

The action plan for older lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, and intersex elders presents actions address specific barriers and challenges faced by this group. It includes case studies, links to existing resources, and a separate consumer-focused document.

Government action plan

The government action plan compliments the above and outlines actions the Australian Government is taking to support the aged care sector to ensure it is meeting the needs of diverse groups.
