Advocate for the following proposed infrastructure for Groote Eylandt: Angurugu Flexible Aged Care Centre to become a multi-functional 24/7 residential care facility. Plan for the expansion of the number of beds required in the future. Ensure adherence to Australian Standards building codes for accessibility (AS1428.12009), which must be met as part of any form of negotiations (GEMCO, EASC, NTG, FAHCSIA) to ensure that all new and upgraded community buildings are fully accessible. Audit existing community buildings to determine accessibility, and put plans into place with service providers for agreement that all buildings/offices must be upgraded to become accessible.
