The Department of Ageing, Disability & Home Care (DADHC) recently sought to conduct a needs analysis and develop resources that would provide the Sydney Metro South region with tools to assist in planning for service development activities, Home and Community Care (HACC) planning processes, and project development around access issues in Aboriginal communities. The Echidna Group Indigenous Research & Development Consultancy was externally contracted by Campbelltown City Council, and by Inner West Aboriginal Community Company, to complete the project objectives for the DADHC South West and Inner West Sydney Local Planning Areas. This article reports the results of community consultation activities in these regions which aimed to determine the needs and issues of Aboriginal people in regard to ageing and disability.
