Further information

The Australian Government has invested $11.3 billion in funding to deliver fairer wages for aged care workers, including a 15% pay increase for aged care workers.

We know that better pay is a key factor in encouraging workers to stay in the sector and for jobseekers to consider joining the aged care workforce.

The Aged Care Wage Increase Satisfaction Survey aims to capture your views and understand what the government’s 15% pay rise for aged care workers has meant to you and your organisation.

We will use the results of this survey to help us evaluate and better understand the effects that this increase has had for workers and providers across the aged care sector.

The survey is for aged care service providers, aged care workers and peak organisations.

We’d like to know:

  • Has it helped to attract more workers to aged care?
  • Does it make you want to stay working in the sector?
  • Do you feel more valued and rewarded for the work you do?

The survey is open from 13 November to 8 December 2023 and should take 10 minutes to complete.

Take the survey.

Thank you in advance for completing the survey. All responses will remain anonymous.

The 15% aged care wage increase supports the Government’s Work Value Case and delivers on recommendation 84 of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety’s Final Report.
