Who we are

The Aged Care Workforce Remote Accord is made up of a group of employers and experts delivering aged care services in remote and very remote areas of Australia.

We work collaboratively with services and communities across the nation to document the challenges facing the workforce and understand existing strategies aimed at combatting those challenges. We are running a Workforce Implementation Project, and building an evidence-based, provider-led advocacy platform. We engage with communities, key stakeholders, and Government to ensure an effective and informed approach to applying provider-led solutions.
