The aged and those with a disability are some of our society’s most vulnerable. As someone becomes aged or deals with a disability and wants to stay at home, home care workers ensure that this is possible. Home care workers are a vital workforce that provide quality care when you need it most.
There are currently changes to the provision of in-home care underway. There are no checks and balances for who provides the care you deserve – and this could lead to serious problems.
We are already seeing new providers flooding the market looking to take advantage of the new money coming into the sector.
Together, we need to make sure that home care will always be quality care provided by passionate, dedicated workers. That’s why home care workers, their clients and families and the community across NSW are coming together to take a stand for home care.
Because It's Time to Be Heard. It's Time to Take Action. And It's Time To Care.

Quality Homecare means quality lives
Home care ensures that some of our society's most vulnerable, the aged and those with a disability, have proper care.
Quality care means:
- A positive relationship between the care worker and clients
- Provides dignity and allows for individuality, allowing clients to feel safe and secure
These can only be provided by trained, professional and well-paid care workers who have enough time to spend with clients.
This is only possible if we create a strong home care system that values quality, certainty and dignity for clients and home care workers.
