Care Together Program
Funded by the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care
The Care Together Program is Australia’s first co-operative and mutual enterprise support program in social care. The Program will help improve the quality and diversity of services provided to older Australians, people living with disability, veterans and First Nations peoples in remote, rural and regional areas and other areas of high need.
Who is Care Together for?
The Care Together Program is designed to put the power back in the hands of the people who matter the most – the people who receive care and the people who deliver care.
Are you interested in innovative, cross-sector, place-based solutions for care delivery where you live? We invite expressions of interest from individuals, organisations or communities to partner with the Care Together Program to support your project as a co-operative or mutual.
“The simple act of caring is heroic.”
– Edward Albert
Co-operatives and mutuals are making a big impact in Australia’s health, community and social services sector. These unique business models, which prioritise the needs of their members over profit, are successfully delivering high-quality services and support to those who need it most.
