CALD and LGBTI aged care strategies

Page last updated: 14 February 2019

The 2013-2017 National Ageing and Aged Care Strategy for People from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Backgrounds (the CALD strategy) and National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) Ageing and Aged Care Strategy (the LGBTI strategy) were developed to inform the way the Government responded to the needs of older people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse backgrounds or who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Intersex.

Both the CALD and LGBTI strategies were reviewed in 2017, with findings showing that aged care stakeholders – providers, peak bodies, individuals and government – have made a concerted effort to implement the strategies over the past five years, with many positive initiatives undertaken along the way. The reviews also outline current challenges which will be considered further.
