Have your say: New Disability Care Industry Reference Committee

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has announced the establishment of a new Disability Care Industry Reference Committee (IRC).

The IRC will build on existing work within the IRC network and provide a dedicated focus to ensure that workers within the disability care sector have the specialist skills and knowledge required to deliver high quality and individualised care in an evolving market.

The Disability Care IRC will bring together industry, health professionals and other key stakeholders to identify the competencies needed by the disability workforce to deliver quality care and support that is consumer-focused.

The AISC is seeking your views on the proposed structure and membership of the Disability Care IRC and aims to capture a broad range of expertise and experience across the diverse services provided by the disability sector. In particular, the AISC is seeking your views on the following:
- Is industry coverage appropriate for the disability sector, or are there gaps?
- Should particular representatives be removed, and/or should others be added?
- Is there a good balance of representation between sub-sectors?
- Does the structure ensure a consumer focus?

For more information about the role and purpose of this new IRC please visit https://www.aisc.net.au/content/disability-care-industry-reference-committee

If you have any comments or suggestions on the proposed structure and membership of the Disability Care IRC, please complete the AISC feedback form.

Public feedback will close Friday, 11 January 2019.
