Question time at Parliament House is the next platform for National Aged Care Alliance (NACA) advocates in their bid to secure reform for the aged care system in Australia. The coalition of twenty-eight peak aged care organisations is urging supporters to join them in the public gallery of the House of Representatives during question time in Canberra on Wednesday 14 March as a show of strength and commitment to reforms they say are urgent and must be addressed in the May budget. Senior representatives of NACA member groups will again be visiting politicians at Parliament House on the 13th and 14th to continue to push their message. According to NACA spokesperson and COTA CEO, Ian Yates, the question time event will be held to cap off these meetings and demonstrate the urgency of the situation and the breadth of public support. NACA is seeking a minimum of 140 supporters to don campaign badges and help fill the public gallery in the House of Representatives on Wednesday 14 March. People wishing to join the event should register by emailing llovell@cota.org.au.
