FIAV working to establish Ethno Specific Aged Care
FIAV has recently joined hands with Australian Unity Retirement Living to establish an ethno-specific aged care and community center in a public-private partnered initiative. This project is being considered for capital funding application to be supported by federal, state and local funding with the estimated cost of 15-20 million Australian dollars and will provide the much needed facility to the second fastest growing Victorian community of Indian origin of around 249,000 in numbers at present.
This project is the first phase of what could be many more facilities that can be built based on demographics of such a population in a particular local council area.
FIAV is also conducting a demographic profile of ethnic Indian population. If you are an indian origin, OR have an ancestory of Indian origin, please help us by completing this survey
Launch the survey
In the following weeks, a special sub-committee shall be in touch with various departments, City Councils & members of federal / state parliament and members of the Indian community to seek assistance with this ambitious project.
