UnitingCare Australia and ACSA welcome funding for remote workforce to address disadvantage and keep families closer together
UnitingCare Australia and Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) have welcomed a $2 million boost in funding to support the implementation of regional and remote elements of the Aged Care Workforce Strategy, including the Remote Accord.
The two groups, who will be responsible for implementing the expanded programs, say the welcome boost will ultimately support the aims of addressing disadvantage and allowing older people to age where they have lived their lives.
