SA Urged to Embrace Co-Op Model to Fix Aged Care and Disability Worker Shortages

Created  6th December 2018

South Australia should embrace the cooperative business model to fix problems in the state’s care sector, according to a leading UK social entrepreneur. 

Dr Guy Turnbull, EY’s UK Entrepreneur of the Year in 2017, has been in Australia sharing his expertise in applying the cooperative model to the social care workforce.

A former UK public service co-operative development worker, Turnbull founded Care and Share Associates Limited (CASA) in 2004, which is a worker-owned carer cooperative that delivers 24,000 hours of support per week.

Turnbull is behind an Adelaide trial linking local GPs and allied health providers with a cooperative of home care staff.
