National Talkblack 230921

We had:

Tim Loh, Australian Taxation Office Assistant Commissioner, talking about tax time support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. ATO continues to see increased demand for the dedicated and tailored support provided each year to make tax and super as easy as possible for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Scott Willis, Australian Physiotherapy Association National President, talking about physical health of people with dementia neglected with tragic consequences. Accidental falls are a leading cause of death in people living with dementia, yet less than 0.25 per cent of the $3 billion dementia health budget is spent on care that can prevent them. The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) has welcomed the release of a new Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) report, Dementia in Australia, launched to mark Dementia Action Week and highlighting the impact of the massive funding short fall.

Katrina Connolly, Sexual Health Indigenous Health Worker at Gurriny Yealamucka Health Service Aboriginal Corporation, talking about the upcoming young person check for youths 15yrs – 24yrs taking place at the Gurriny clinic. It will be going from the 20th September – 14th October from 10am – 6pm.
