Office of the Inspector-General of Aged Care

Our independent oversight helps transform the aged care system to better meet the diverse needs of older people in Australia.

Oversight of aged care

We call out systemic and significant issues in aged care, recommend change to government and parliament, and review complaints management processes.

Get involved

Engaging with the sector is important to our work. We value input from those within the sector, those representing the sector, and the public.

Who we are

We are an independent agency. We have oversight of the administration, regulation, and funding of the aged care system by the Australian Government.


Our vision is to be a trusted authority that ensures integrity and accountability in the aged care system by providing informed and independent oversight. We will be a catalyst for change by calling out problems and identifying areas for improvement to ensure that older people can access the care they need.
