Elder Abuse in Ethnic Communities
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is on Wednesday 15 June 2016. It is the main day in the year when the world voices its opposition to the abuse and suffering inflicted on older people, most often by their families.
Seniors Rights Victoria would like to encourage you to mark the day in some way please, utilising their new WEAAD 2016 Toolkit.
Your activity doesn’t have to be high-resource: the Toolkit contains lots of ideas, as well as marketing support and links to brandmarks, social media and web banners and merchandise such as posters, magnets, bookmarks and ribbons.
To find out more about WEAAD, and to register your event or activity, please go to http://elderabuseawarenessday.org.au/.
For further information and assistance to support people in planning their activities, please contact Caitlin Evans on 9655 2119 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Victorian Government Fact Sheets on elder abuse prevention in other languages are available from Seniors Online.
