LABOR'S COMMITMENT TO WYANGA ABORIGINAL AGED CARE
A Shorten Labor Government will provide much needed support to Wyanga, an aboriginal aged care program in Redfern, to help take its clients nearing the enf of their lives back to their country.
Sadly, to date, Wyanga has not had the resources to make this a reality.
This Shorten Labor commitment of $50,000 will also mean Wyanga clients can attend the Aboriginal Elders Olympic Games.
“They have regularly been invited to participate but because of a lack of funding, they have never been able to attend,” Ms Plibersek
Wyanga Aboriginal Aged Care Program Inc. was founded in 1996 by Sylvia Scott and Mary Silva to provide care and support for elders in our local community.
Wyanga places emphasis on providing culturally appropriate services, high quality aged care and disability support services to local elders in their own homes and in the community.
