Information stall with free cupcakes, information brochures, a friendly face to talk to and awareness ribbons to share.

Matthew Flinders will then make a year round display in their foyer.
The Royal Commission into Family Violence in Victoria found that elder abuse is an under-reported form of family violence that warrants particular attention and a tailored response. This breakfast event will explore the Victorian Government’s family violence reform agenda and implications for older people and elder abuse. The session will showcase initiatives underway across the state and explore ideas for making sure that older people receive the support they need.
Very little research has been done on intervention and prevention strategies
that produce the most effective and efficient outcome for the older person.
This conference will inform delegates about the strategies developed and
used by professionals in a variety of fields, such as in the legal system and
in the aged care and community sectors.
Join us for an afternoon tea as part of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.
