Single site employment for private and not for profit aged care facilities in the Greater Melbourne region ends at 11:59pm tonight (17 February 2021).
ANMF (Vic Branch) was formally notified on 16 February that Federal Government Support for Aged Care Workers in COVID-19 (SACWIC) funding will soon cease. This funding allowed for single site employment arrangements to be re-introduced for private residential aged care facilities in the Greater Melbourne region. The Federal Government based the decision to cease funding on current risk and decreasing COVID-19 case numbers in the Victorian community.
This announcements has no bearing on public aged care facilities which still have single site employment arrangements, funded by the Victorian Government, in place until the end of June 2021.
