Message from the CEO

The Aged & Community Services Association of NSW & ACT Inc (ACS) is delighted to be a strong voice for not for profit organisations supporting older people.

Our services have been rated highly by members as providing timely and valuable support on employee relations, policy development, advocacy, consultancy and learning and development. Our events and conferences are proudly run as topical and quality activities to promote learning and sharing across the sector.

We work closely with partners across all levels of government and around Australia to be in a position of influence when decisions are being made. While we are based at Rhodes in Sydney, we have frequent visits to our regional areas and communicate regularly using various forms of technology.

Our focus is on all aspects of support for older Australians; including housing, community care, residential places and healthy ageing. We have a long term commitment to older people and believe in a just and compassionate society that values all of its citizens.

The next few years are likely to include major changes as we engage in reform of the sector. In this environment the Association seeks to be a strong advocate and support as we maximise the benefits of those changes for our members and their consumers.
