Afford Workplace Change

Afford management are proposing to implement a new operating model. You can view their letter at this link.


Afford has advised that the new operating model includes changes to the Senior Lifestyle Assistant positions across NSW & Victoria. As a result of this change, twenty-three (23) Senior Lifestyle Assistant positions will be made redundant effective 23rd October 2023.


With any workplace change you have the right to consultation. This includes the right to raise any issue or provide feedback about the change and have it reasonably considered. You also have the right to meet with management and discuss your individual impact.


We urge any member who is affected by these redundancies to contact HSU at 1300 478 679 or alternatively email [E-Mail not displayed] if you require assistance.


Do you know someone who isn’t a member of the HSU? Send them this email and make sure they are represented!


New members can join online at or call 1300 478 679 and join over the phone.
