The Maggie Beer Foundation assembles ‘Alliance of the Willing’ to continue the urgent fight for improved food and nutrition in Aged Care

………“There are so many people in aged care working so hard, but often without the support or being empowered to do things better. The National Congress was an opportunity to bring stakeholders together around the table to find real solutions that our aged care residents deserve. The spirit of collaboration and the willingness to make amazing change is an incredibly powerful thing. The final report is such a positive step forward and I thank you for your participation and generous contribution to its success”, said Maggie.

The report, prepared with Deloitte highlights 56 findings many of which align with the recommendations identified in the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety.

We were so heartened by the collaboration and commitment of all of those who were part of the National Congress, we have been inspired to initiate an Alliance of the Willing to help address the key findings. This is a crucial step which will provide an opportunity to work together to enact real change.
