Aged Care Sector Support

Home 5 Ageing Well Hub 5 Aged Care Sector Support

Older people from migrant and refugee backgrounds face multiple, overlapping disadvantages and barriers and can find it difficult to navigate the aged care system.

ECCV is working to ensure that older migrants and refugees access support services that help them with everyday living and other needs, in a respectful, dignified and culturally appropriate way.

Our Work

Support at Home

The new Support at Home Program is implementing key recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, which will bring community aged care services together into one streamlined service. 

People from migrant and refugee communities require culturally and linguistically inclusive support as they age, and ECCV is committed to working with our members and partners, the sector and government to ensure this is a priority in the reform process. 

Access & Support Network

Victoria’s Access and Support (A&S) program supports people with diverse needs to live independently at home by providing them with information and connecting them with in-home aged care service providers.

Since 2012, ECCV has been coordinating the Access & Support Network which provides a platform to discuss issues related to A&S services, offer peer support, share best practice, and stay informed of sector updates.
