SUBMISSION TO THE 2021/22 FEDERAL BUDGET
April 14, 2021
The Old Colonists’ Association of Victoria welcomes the opportunity to make a submission on the 202122 Federal Budget Even with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its effect socially and economically on Australia, this Budget is of vital importance to and for older Australians.
The findings and insights from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety’s final report will have important implications for the Budget. We hope that the Government capitalises on the Commission’s findings and makes a clear commitment to older Australians in the Budget. This includes a clear financial roadmap outlining by when the Government’s decisions on transforming aged care, following the Royal Commission’s recommendations, will be delivered.
Leith Park is a wonderful place for single older women because of the community and the age-friendly accommodation. I don’t think I have ever felt as safe as I have here.
