Following the recent unveiling of Prime Minister Anthony Albanese’s new ministry, local not-for-profit business Community Vision welcomes the appointment of new Education Minister Jason Clare, Health and Aged Care Minister Mark Butler, Minister for Aged Care Anika Wells, Assistant Minister for Health and Aged Care Ged Kearney and former opposition leader Bill Shorten as Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme and the Minister for Government Services.
As CEO of Community Vision, who provide much needed family day care, disability and aged care services, Michelle Jenkins comments, “As a grass root community-based organisation caring for our youngest and most vulnerable, we welcome this new leadership team within the sector and we call for them all to recognise and address their promises to the aged care and disability sectors.
“With aged care a key focus of Labor’s election campaign, we look forward to seeing much needed changes and to working with them to create a more sustainable sector which meets the needs of the community we serve, into the future.
“In regard to the family day care sector, we hope to see an increase in the number of childcare opportunities including additional funding of family day care providers to meet the current additional childcare demands.”
“We are very excited to work with all these experienced leaders and wish them well in their new roles. It is time for all vulnerable Australians to get the care they deserve.”
This year marks 21 years Community Vision has been assisting Western Australians of all ages and abilities through home care, disability and family day care service programs, employing over 180 staff and servicing over 1000 customers.
