Burnie Walk Against Elder Abuse

Do something truly life-affirming this World Elder Abuse Awareness Day and march against elder abuse on 15 June.

Every year, passionate, caring Tasmanians of all ages march to support the right of older people to live without ageism and abuse.

In 2022, we will gather again under cover on the Wilmot Street footpath across the road from the cinema at 9.50am for a 10am start.

We’ll finish in the Bass and Flinders Room at the Arts and Function Centre  for a warming free morning tea provided by the council.

Bring your friends, your colleagues and your family.

The more people who attend, the farther the message will spread that older people deserve the same rights as people of every age, including the right to be safe, respected and welcomed in the life of our communities.

To register, email lynm@cotatas.org.au or ring 6231 32 65.

If you or anyone you know is experiencing or at risk of elder abuse,
ring the Tasmanian Elder Abuse Helpline on 1800 441 169
for free, confidential, sympathetic information and referral.
