Last night’s federal budget announced $5.9 billion over two years to extend aged home care block funding under the Commonwealth Home Support Program.

The ASU strongly lobbied for additional funding to this program.

We welcome this funding announcement and look forward to speaking with the federal minister’s office this week to learn more about the detail of this decision and press for additional commitments.

The ASU will continue to work with members to advocate for the important role of our members in delivering excellent care in the community.

The ASU believes block funding should be on-going and that growth funding needs to be made available to enhance the important role of Council working to protect their elderly communities.
