SUBMISSION TO THE 2021/22 FEDERAL BUDGET

April 14, 2021

The Old Colonists’ Association of Victoria welcomes the opportunity to make a submission on the 202122 Federal Budget Even with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and its effect socially and economically on Australia, this Budget is of vital importance to and for older Australians.

The findings and insights from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety’s final report will have important implications for the Budget.
