Background to ACIA
ACIA was established in 2005 as a peak industry body to address key issues facing this expanding industry. Supported by a grant from the Motor Accident Authority of NSW and auspiced by the Westmead Brain Injury Unit, ACIA was established to promote and implement the vision of an attendant care industry that is known and respected as a provider of quality services that enhances outcomes for service users. While ACIA commenced as a NSW based association, it is now a national organisation with a national agenda.
ACIA’s vision is that the attendant care industry is known and respected as a provider of quality services within a sustainable environment
