The Australian Community Industry Alliance (ACIA) is the peak body for Community Service, Aged Care and Disability providers across Australia.
Our Story: The Australian Community Industry Alliance (ACIA), formally The Attendant Care Industry Association (ACIA), journey began in 2005 when a dedicated group of of Service Providers recognised the need for an independent organisation, that represents and supports non-government organisations in the Community Services Sector providing services to benefit of people with disability, those with complex or long-term care needs and aged care clients living in the community. acia was established as a peak industry body to address key issues facing this expanding industry. Supported by a grant from iCare and MAIB. ACIA was established to promote and implement the vision of what was then recognised as an attendant care industry that is known and respected as a provider of quality services that enhances outcomes for clients. While ACIA commenced as a NSW based association, it is now a national organisation with a national agenda. Today, ACIA remains the only organisation of its kind in Australia.
