Aged Care Interagency

The Inner West Council Aged Care Interagency is a forum established to bring together the various agencies working with older people in the Inner West Council area.

The role of the Aged Care Interagency is to:

  • work together on issues relating to older people and/or aged services;
  • provide input to local service planning processes on emerging issues, service delivery gaps and the needs of older people;
  • inform and be informed by the Seniors Reference Group on the needs, opinions and aspirations of Marrickville's older population;
  • facilitate access to services, programs and activities and alert the Seniors Reference Group to any emerging issues and service gaps;
  • provide comment on government policy changes and support relevant local policy development;
  • assist with special events planning, coordination and participation, in particular Seniors Week;
  • identify and assist with implementation of projects involving service development and improved coordination of services or information for older people;
  • seek and apply for additional funding to support projects;
  • provide a forum for information exchange, support and promotion of local services;
  • exchange information/representation with other local or relevant forums such as HACC forums, other Interagencies and the Marrickville Seniors Reference Group; and
  • foster increased knowledge and understanding of services for older people in the wider community and contribute to community building practices that will allow the community to best respond to its own needs.
