From 1 July 2022, you will no longer hear from ACSA, however, our commitment to enhancing the lives of older Australians lives on, through a new, unified voice in Australian aged care – ACCPA. Visit for more information. 

Aged & Community Services Australia (ACSA) is the leading national peak body supporting not for profit, church and charitable providers of retirement living, community, home and residential care for more than 450,000 older Australians.

We are committed to being a strong and effective advocate with a persuasive national voice that leads the national aged care agenda.

We provide our members with support and services in the areas of legislative compliance, policy advice, work health and safety, industrial relations, aged care legislative review, training and personal development.

Our close relationship with our members, assures that we understand the unique challenges faced in the sector and that our focus remains on providing effective services to enable our members to meet these challenges.

ACSA has enormous strength through its numbers across Australia, and by the high regard in which it is held by communities and stakeholders. 

The Not-for-Profit Sector

Faith based, community and charitable aged care organisations play a significant role in the Australian community by providing care and support in a time of crisis and when help is most needed.

Not-for-Profits (NFP) are committed to promoting choice, wellbeing and quality of life for older Australians. ACSA members are custodians of values, leaders of innovation, champions of volunteerism, providers of pastoral care and proponents of wholesale community benefit. There is a commitment to people and values rather than investment and profit.

Any surplus is reinvested in improving services, keeping people actively connected in civil society; delivering unprofitable services in unviable markets, and operating where there is no capacity for the disadvantaged in our society to receive care in existing markets.

It is purpose that gives leaders in our sector their unique sense of duty. It’s that purpose that lies at the very heart of devising organisational strategy, the manner in which our vital work is undertaken, and the way we hold ourselves accountable to our consumers, our patrons and society as a whole.
