About Us

The Australian aged care industry is a rapidly growing and changing sector and ACIA believes in the value of good advice and education to support members in their journey through the aged care industry regulatory changes.

The Aged Care Industry Association (ACIA) is a peak body for organisations involved in provision of care and services to older people. Our membership includes NFPs, private providers and large, multi-state operators. Our members operate services including residential aged care, home care, home support and retirement living.

ACIA’s work is to encourage a legislative and regulatory environment, which supports high standards and long-term viability for the aged care industry as a whole.

ACIA’s membership includes both direct care providers and organisations who support and supply direct care providers.

Our membership covers all facets of aged care in Australia:

  • Retirement living
  • Home care
  • Residential aged care
  • Private care (i.e., care that does not receive Commonwealth funding)
  • Large, multi-state operators
  • Single-facility providers
  • Private organisations
  • Not-for-profit organisations
  • Government bodies
The diversity of our membership provides ACIA with a unique perspective across the range of aged care services and provider types – we are well-placed to identify and promote international opportunities across our membership.
ACIA was incorporated on 1 July 2016. However, the association has existed since the 1990s under different names.
