annecto remains open and will continue to provide support services throughout the Coronavirus outbreak

2020 Aged Care Approvals Round

We are excited to report that annecto has seen overwhelming success in the recently-announced 2020 Aged Care Approvals Round (ACAR). More broadly, the allocation results across Australia include:

  • 4,098 new residential aged care places
  • $150 million capital grant funding
  • 1,028 short-term restorative care (STRC) places

Among these figures, many of our regions have been successful in receiving STRC places, a true testament to the outstanding work carried out each day by our dedicated staff.

Allocation details are as follows:

  • ACT – 7 places
  • MNC – 4 places
  • OFW – 1 place
  • SES – 8 places
  • SWS – 2 places
  • WS – 5 places
  • LMR – 8 places
  • Nepean – 2 places
  • Sunshine coast – 8 places

While we continue to play an active role in providing STRC places in a variety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia, this latest allocation presents a very exciting opportunity for annecto to realise support in other diverse communities, including LGBTQI+, CALD and rural communities.

We can’t wait to see what this opportunity brings for the people we support and our staff, and congratulate all those involved in developing the submission.
