How will Federal Budget initiatives underpin the future of Aged Care development in a post Royal commission environment?

Take the opportunity to watch the 2021 Aged Care Leaders Industry breakfast with guest speakers from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

The event will inform Aged Care Boards, CEOs and Property Managers on how the Royal Commission outcomes and Federal budget will shape, transform, and influence new aged care developments and refurbishments.

The event explores how the Federal Budget has responded to the Royal Commission into Aged Care, what the initiatives and funding will mean to the aged care development landscape and how designing for the aged care sector might evolve.

The panel of experts provide industry updates and thought-provoking concepts that will challenge our way of thinking.

Discussions are moderated by Cynthia Payne and include an overview of the RC report and outcomes followed by an expert panel discussion on how ageing sector developers can rise above the challenges and build fit for purpose ageing environments of the future.
