It’s hoped the $2 million strategy will be used to improve and expand the aged care workforce. The Productivity Commission recently forecast Australia will need one million aged care staff by 2050.

The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (ASIC) Chair and former Fosters and Pacific Brands CEO brings a wealth of experience to the role.

I am honored to be asked by the Minister to lead such a critical Taskforce both to the wellbeing of older Australians and to the wonderful members of our community that devote their love, time and careers to such valuable and important work. Professor John Pollaers
