Speak My Language about aged care

The Ethnic Communities Council of New South Wales recently launched a new project which aims to facilitate access to aged care information for people who speak languages other than English.

The project will include the delivery of on-air discussions about aged care options in over 25 languages across 80 Ethnic radio stations, across 4 states including NSW, Victoria and Queensland. The project will reach an audience of over 50,000 people per week, who will also have access to several technological based solutions such as live webinars, podcasts and interactive websites to link them to the right information.

Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing acknowledges and pays respect to the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, on whose land this website was developed. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their ancestors and elders, both past and present and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We hope our work contributes to the wider project of respect and recognition between cultures in Australia. Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing receives project funding from the Australian Department of Health to administer the Partners in Culturally Appropriate Care (PICAC) program in Victoria.
