This morning Attorney General Christian Porter announced a National Plan to Respond to the Abuse of Older Australians, including the rollout of a new national, elder abuse free call number and a series of national trials of frontline services.
Our CE, Ian Yates, commends the Federal and state/territory governments for working together to rollout a decisive action plan to reverse the growing incidence of elder abuse suffered by far too many older Australians.
Every single older Australian deserves to be confident they will be safe from elder abuse in all its forms and in the event that they are abused, they should have access to resources that will allow them to safely reach out for help and support receive necessary protection.
