The support and assistance provided to each organisation is tailored to its context and needs, with a focus on ensuring that the organisations are equipped to provide ongoing and sustainable delivery of quality aged care services to the community, while at the same time ensuring compliance with the new Aged Care Quality Standards. These projects are implemented in collaboration with aged care specialist partners the Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing and Australian Multicultural Community Services (AMCS).
