Aged Care Providers Merge in Sydney
Thursday, 28th April 2016 at 10:18 am

Not for Profit aged care providers Anglicare Sydney and Anglican Retirement Villages (ARV) have agreed to merge, making the new organisation one of the largest aged care providers in Greater Sydney.

“Combining our organisations will extend our ability to offer high quality social, welfare and aged care services,” Anglicare CEO Grant Millard said.

“Together ARV and Anglicare Sydney reach approximately 50,000 people every year. Over the last couple of years the CEOs of ARV and Anglicare Sydney have discussed opportunities for the two organisations to work more closely together, given the similarity of services.

“Anglicare is already well known in the community but our combined organisation will strengthen our advocacy agenda on behalf of the people we serve. Joining forces means greater opportunities to provide for older Australians and people living on the margins.”

Millard said the Anglican Synod’s decision to merge was a significant milestone for the two organisations, as well as for the Sydney Anglican Diocese.

“Our combined organisation expands our work in community aged care, residential aged care and retirement villages. It will give us better economies of scale,” ARV CEO Rob Freeman said.

“This allows us to invest more in technology and innovative programs designed to improve quality of life for our residents and clients. Our greater capacity will also allow us to develop new services and programs for vulnerable people in our community.”

He said the merged organisation was supported by approximately 3,800 full-time and part-time staff and 2,900 volunteers.

“It will provide aged care services to 6,600 people living in the community. While approximately 70 per cent of the merged organisation will focus on retirement living and aged care, community and family support services are still an essential part of the work,” Freeman said.

The merged organisation is set to formally begin operation on 1 July 2016. The new name for the organisation is yet to be determined.
