The Australian Government has granted A$1.7m (US$1.6m) to upgrade and extend the Galiwin’ku Aged Care Service on Elcho Island in the Northern Territory.

The funding will also be used to build new staff accommodation, and provide improved, culturally inclusive aged care services for older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the area.

The Minister for Indigenous Health, and Member for Lingiari, Warren Snowdon said the upgrade to the Galiwin’ku Aged Care Service would assist the older members of the Galawin’ku community and their families, by improving their access to high-quality care services.

In November 2008, the Australian Government granted A$291.2m (US$287m) over six years to improve the delivery of services in 29 priority remote service delivery communities throughout Australia, including Galiwin’ku.
