LASA Excellence in Age Services Awards 2018

Landscape

Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) is the national peak body representing providers of age services across residential care, home care and retirement living. Our vision is to enable a high performing, respected, sustainable age services industry delivering affordable, accessible, quality care and services for older Australians.


The LASA Excellence in Age Services Awards aim to promote and recognise excellence across the diverse and dynamic fields of endeavour in the age services industry. The awards celebrate the passion and achievements of organisations, teams and individuals in the service of older Australians.  The awards also seek to increase public confidence and community involvement in aged care and services.
