Description:

The PICAC program is funded through the Dementia and Aged Care Services (DACS) Fund. The Grant Opportunity is for one year (2020-21).

The purpose of the PICAC Program is to:

  • provide support to the aged care sector in delivering appropriate aged care to people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds;

  • ensure CALD older people experience a high quality, inclusive, culturally appropriate and respectful aged care system that ensures equitable access and outcomes and embraces their diverse characteristics and life experiences; and

  • work to embed the principles of culturally appropriate and inclusive aged care, set out in the  Aged Care Diversity Framework and the Actions to Support Older Culturally and Linguistically Diverse people: A Guide For Aged Care Providers, into the everyday practice of all service providers. 

The objectives of the grant opportunity are:

  • to provide guidance and support to aged care providers to assist aged care providers to meet their obligations under the Aged Care Quality Standards linked to commitments made in the  aged care diversity action plan to respond to the differing needs of older people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities; and
  • to work to improve the partnership between aged care providers, CALD communities and the Australian Government Department of Health to ensure that aged care service providers are informed on best practice in the delivery of culturally appropriate care.
