annecto - The People Network

We are an independent, non profit association committed to increasing community inclusion, opportunity and choice for people with a disability, older people, their families and carers across VictoriaNew South WalesQueensland and the ACT.

Our vision is to help create a community where all people experience a sense of belonging, an appreciation of people from different backgrounds and abilities, and opportunities for each person to connect with their own interests and talents and to work with others through affirming interactions and relationships.

We connect by:

  • working together with all people in the community to help foster a common vision and sense of belonging by all people;
  • a society in which the diversity of people's backgrounds and circumstances is appreciated and valued;
  • in which similar life opportunities are available to all;
  • in which strong and positive relationships exist and continue to be developed in all areas of life.
  • helping people to recognise and connect with their internal strength to nurture growth and resilience.

Review Guidelines.

Reviewing an aged care provider is a great way to share your thoughts. But please follow the policies listed below when writing a review.

We will remove content that violates any of the policies listed below:

  • Conflict of interest: Reviews are most valuable when they are honest and unbiased. Please do not review your own aged care service or that of a competitor.
  • Off-topic reviews: Do not post reviews based on a third party experience, they must be your own. Our reviews are not a forum for general political or social commentary or personal rants.
  • Impersonation: Do not post reviews on behalf of other people or misrepresent your identity or connection with the aged care provider you are reviewing.
  • Language: Do not use offensive, profane, or obscene language. We will remove reviews that represent personal attacks.
  • Personal and confidential information: Do not post reviews that contain the personal and confidential information of another person.
  • Spam Content: Please no spam. Reviews should be a genuine reflection of your experience with an aged care provider. Do not include promotional content or advertising in any form. Duplicate material will not be accepted.
  • Telephone Numbers and Web Links: To prevent adverts and spam, we do not permit phone numbers or web links.
  • Hate Speech: We do not allow reviews that advocate against people based on their ethnic origin, religion, gender, disability, sexual orientation or age.
