28 May 2019 Tasmanian Member Consultation: Royal Commission into Aged Care
Consultation: in person & via videoconference

The AASW is currently preparing a submission for the Royal Commission into Aged Care. To ensure we’re advocating with the most recent experience and knowledge from our members, we’re holding consultation sessions with interested members to express their voice and contribute to our submission. In this 90-minute group consultation, we’ll be generating discussion around the terms of reference and other key points relevant to the Royal Commission to inform our submission.

This session will be facilitated by a member of the AASW National Social Policy and Advocacy team and hosted by David Gould from the Tasmanian Branch Management Committee.

We warmly welcome the participation of Tasmanian members.

If you are too remote to be able to attend in person, we may be able to organise for you to dial in. When registering, select the option for remote participation and please send an email to and we will share with you the details on how to join the session using an internet connection.
