Speech: Building the Sector, Building HACC - HACC Conference 2011

At the National Home and Community Care Conference 2011, ACTCOSS Director Roslyn Dundas presented on theme of 'workforce challenges and success'.

The networking and professional development and communication tools offered by ACTCOSS as part of the sector development project may sound simple, but unless there are dedicated resources and supports for such things, they don't happen.

If the primary objective of the HACC program is to provide services to enhance the quality of life of people who have disabilities or are frail, enabling them to live as independently as possible, then this depends on staff who make up the sector and enable this quality.
