The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety was established on 8 October 2018 by the Australian Government to inquire into the quality of residential and in-home aged care and will provide a final report by 12 November 2020.

On 24 June 2020, the Royal Commission published a consultation paper, examining how aged care is funded in Australia and overseas, and considering a range of options that have the potential to transform the way aged care is funded and delivered in Australia.

Submissions on the issues raised in the paper will be accepted until close of business on Tuesday, 4 August 2020.

Research Paper

A new research paper by Flinders University was also published by the Royal Commission. It shows Australians strongly support increased funding to ensure universal access to high-quality aged care services in the future.
