Boost for Aged-Care Facilities – Kaushaliya Vaghela MP

BOOST FOR AGED-CARE FACILITIESThe Andrews Government has launched the first part of our Building Works package, which will provide $2.7 billion towards shovel-ready projects – big and small – to get thousands of people back to work. As part of this effort the public sector residential aged-care services across our state will also benefit. I requested the Minister for Child Protection and Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers, the Honourable Luke Donnellan, to advise if aged-care facilities in my area of Western Metropolitan Region will also benefit from this boost.#KaushaliyaMP

My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Child Protection and Minister for Disability, Ageing and Carers, the Honourable Luke Donnellan. My question relates to the minister’s portfolio responsibilities for disability, ageing and carers. The COVID-19 pandemic represents the most significant challenge to Australia’s economy, the impact of which will last for decades. As industries and businesses find new and innovative ways to adapt, the Victorian government is rolling up its sleeves and playing its part to drive new economic activity and with it create thousands of new jobs across the state. The government has launched the first part of the Building Works package, which will provide $2.7 billion towards shovel-ready projects, big and small, to get thousands of people back to work. As part of this effort the public sector residential aged-care services across our state will also benefit. My question to the minister is: can the minister advise if aged-care facilities in my area of Western Metropolitan Region will also benefit from this boost?
