Our People

The new Commission

The Commission’s principal role is to protect and enhance the safety, health, well-being and quality of life of people receiving aged care funded by the Australian Government. We are committed to promoting the provision of high quality care and services for these individuals. We will be the single point of contact for complaints, quality and regulation in aged care which will strengthen the focus on consumers, streamline regulation, support better engagement with and between consumers and providers, and promote transparency.

The Commission is led by an independent Commissioner – Janet Anderson – who reports directly to the Minister for Senior Australians and Aged Care. The Commissioner’s Executive Team will initially comprise the executives who previously reported directly to either the CEO of the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency or the Aged Care Complaints Commissioner. These individuals are listed below.
