Uniting AgeWell established a community advisory committee in early 2016 to help plan and shape the future of the organisation’s services and the aged care system as a whole.
One of the first of its kind in the aged care industry, the AgeWell Community Advisory Committee (ACAC) is a sub-committee of the Uniting AgeWell Board. It is made up of community members from Victoria and Tasmania who are passionate about senior services.
Since its establishment, it has become an important resource and community voice for the planning and delivery of Uniting AgeWell services across Victoria and Tasmania.
The Committee has worked on a number of projects including improving the health and literacy aspects of Uniting AgeWell’s communications, providing feedback on external communications and the updated website, monitoring key performance indicators for quality and safety, and consultation around the establishment of a research project with Deakin University into community engagement.
