About PICAC

Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) is an initiative funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services to:

  • Improve partnerships between aged care service providers, culturally and linguistically diverse communities and the Department of Health and Ageing and;
  • Ensure the special needs of older people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds are identified and addressed.


The PICAC initiative provides funding to an organisation in each state and territory. Click on the links below for contact details.
