In this edition of Homeshare Australia News:
The hoped for Homeshare Round table, mentioned in our last newsletter, is set to happen in October!
The offices of the Ministers Wyatt (Aged Care) and Porter (DSS – NDIS) have worked with HANZA and The Australia Institute to find a date to bring representatives of government, peak aged care and disability bodies together with Homeshare providers to review the work done to date in accepting and growing Homeshare and to chart a way forward.
