Download the joint statement

We are currently putting together a response to the final report and recommendations.  We’ll use this report to ensure our issues are built into all the new initiatives resulting from these recommendations.

We want to hear from you. 

  1. What are the critical issues for older LGBTIQ+ people which are not addressed by the Royal Commission?
  2. If your organisation offers services for older LGBTIQ+ people, how will they be impacted by these recommendations?
  3. If you access aged care services, for yourself or a loved one, how do you see the changes impacting you?
  4. If you are an aged care worker, how do these recommendations impact your work?
