Change Day invites you to be change-makers in health, aged care and community services right across Australia.

It’s easy to get caught up believing that change needs to start somewhere else. We can end up waiting for someone else to ‘fix’ things or waiting for someone to give us permission to be amazing, or even just to do what we know need to be done.

Don’t wait any longer! Where ever you are and whatever your role is in health and community care: you can make a difference. Together our potential is enormous.

  • The greatest danger in times of turbulence is not the turbulence…it is to act with yesterday's logic.
    Peter Drucker
  • “Research shows that environments where people feel fully alive powerfully catalyse success.”
    Doug Newburg
  • “Change doesn’t rain down on us from on high. Rather, its stories are co-created and co-owned by the community. Or, at least they are if you want the change to stick.”
    Julian Stodd
  • ‘‘Leaders must wake people out of inertia. They must get people excited about something they’ve never seen before, something that does not yet exist.”
    Rosa Beth Moss Kanter
  • You have to be achingly eager to do whatever can be done, within the limits of physics and economics, to raise the quantum of human happiness in the world.
    Gary Hamel
  • Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
    Barack Obama
