Royal Commission into Aged Care – Tell Your Story

Royal Commission Aged Care Logo

The Royal Commission into Aged Care needs to hear from people who have migrated to Australia or taken asylum in Australia.

FECCA has launched a new toolkit designed to help culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) older Australians and their families and carers tell their stories to the Aged Care Royal Commission.


The toolkit helps those supporting older care recipients have conversations with their loved ones about a range of issues, including:

  • What the Royal Commission on Aged Care Quality and Safety is and how it works
  • Why it is important that the Royal Commission hears from CALD Australians
  • How to tell the Royal Commission about their experience in their own language (in writing, by telephone or as a recording)
  • Are you or someone in your family finding it hard to find good aged care services?
  • Have you had problems with the services you or a family member are using?
  • Do you have ideas about how things could be better?

The Royal Commission into Aged Care is looking into aged care in Australia. They want to get as much information as possible about what the problems are, what is working well, and ideas for changes in the future.

They are interested in people’s stories and experiences. The Royal Commission wants to hear from you!

They will then write a report for the Government saying what they have found out and how things could be better.

You can tell your story in your own language:

  • In writing or email
  • By telephone
  • By sending them a recording.

The Royal Commission will pay for translations into English, it will not cost you anything.

It is important that lots of people from ethnic or multicultural backgrounds tell the Royal Commission what they think!

Here is a toolkit to help you!
