Growing our home care workforce
The Homecare Workforce Support Program - TAS assists with the operational delivery of the Home Care Workforce Support Program and was awarded to the consortium of Aged and Community Services, Powerhouse Hub, Human Services Skills Organisation (HSSO), and MEGT.
The Home Care Workforce Program aims to:
- Support the home care sector to attract, train and retain an additional 13,000 Personal Care Workers (PCWs) to support the growing demand for older Australians to access home care
- Assist new PCWs, such as students, trainees, and other new entrants, to learn the skills and get the training required to deliver quality aged care services
- Enhance skills within the existing workforce to ensure better support for new PCWs and help improve retention
- Provide targeted support to aged and residential care providers to promote access for older Australians to home care in remote areas
