ACSA exists to support an equitable and just aged care sector that Australians can trust to offer quality of life, choice and accessibility.

ACSA is a member-owned organisation that represents and supports community-invested businesses that:

  • Are integral to the socio-economic fabric of their communities;
  • Provide communities with assurance their needs will be met;
  • Reinvest surpluses into services their communities need;
  • Employ people committed to their local communities;
  • Harness efforts of local volunteers.

Why join ACSA

As a provider you are operating in a rapidly changing landscape and ACSA understands the need to support you during this time, whether that be through strong and effective advocacy or through training and information to help your business.

As an ACSA member you can be assured that your voice will be heard at the highest levels of government and that you have access to high quality support and linked with like-minded organisations that have similar purpose-driven missions.

We need to make government understand how important our aged services are to the very fabric of our communities and work with them to ensure sustainability, growth and quality services for all Australians. Above all, we need to hold true to our community benefit and charitable missions, creating options for people who lack choice, and filling gaps where there is market failure.

We need to focus on our priorities and drive those priorities home at every level of government, particularly the Commonwealth. The more we can speak with one voice, being true to our values and our communities, the stronger we can be in influencing government.
