Leading Age Services Australia (LASA) is the national peak body representing providers of age services across residential care, home care and retirement living. Our vision is to enable a high performing, respected, sustainable age services industry delivering affordable, accessible, quality care and services for older Australians.

The LASA Excellence in Age Services Awards aim to promote and recognise excellence across the diverse and dynamic fields of  endeavour in the age services industry. The awards celebrate the passion and achievements of organisations, teams and individuals in the service of older Australians.

The awards also seek to increase public confidence and community involvement in aged care and services.

Awards will be judged at a state level across a number of categories, with the winners from each state progressing as finalists to the national awards. The national awards will be announced at the LASA National Congress 2018.
