Attendant care – also referred to as community care – refers to any paid care or support services delivered at a person’s home or in their community to enable them to remain living in the community. It targets people of all ages – the frail aged, people with ill health or people with disability.
ACIA’s vision is that the Home and Community Services Industry is known as a provider of quality services to community members requiring support in both the disability and aged care sectors. To achieve this vision, ACIA provides education, resources and support to the industry, as well as developing and administering its own quality standard (endorsed by the Joint Accreditation System for Australia and New Zealand JAS-ANZ).
To represent and advance the knowledge and practice of Community Service Industry in Australia by: Enhancing the professionalism of community services Advocating for and promoting the delivery of quality service provision for the public benefit. Raising awareness and profile of sector Advocating for the development and implementation of appropriate legislation, policies, practices and programs relevant to the sector at national, state and local levels
ACIA is a not-for-profit industry association that exists to support service providers to deliver high quality attendant care services to people requiring support to live at home or in their community. ACIA is sustained by revenue generated through memberships, education and training workshops, special project work and donations. ACIA is also grateful for the financial support provided by the NSW Lifetime Care and Support Authority (iCare).
