LASA is the national peak body representing providers of age services across residential care, home care and retirement living. Becoming a LASA member ensures your interests will be represented and your voice heard.
Delivering on the promise
Our promise to LASA Members as we transform from a federated organisation into a single national membership peak body representing all providers of age services across residential care, home care and retirement living, was that through unification we would be better placed to serve your needs in a time of unprecedented change in the aged care industry. This would be achieved by providing Members with: stronger advocacy; better access to services and support; and enhanced value for money.
Our interpretation of meeting the needs and expectations of Members as the unified LASA is reflected in the document – Delivering on the Promise. (PDF)
This document outlines: the unified LASA value proposition for Members; provides a summary of the proposed membership service offering; and, requests input and feedback from Members as we further refine the suite of services and support we are implementing.
