Elder Abuse happens. Know the signs, make it stop.

This year’s campaign ‘Elder abuse happens. Know the signs, make it stop’ highlighted the most common signs of elder abuse, and encouraged Queenslanders to call the helpline if they suspect an older person in their life is being abused and needs help.

If you suspect someone you know is experiencing elder abuse, don’t wait for proof. Call the Elder Abuse Helpline on 1300 651 192 for free confidential information and referrals. Helpline operators are available between 9am and 5pm weekdays.

You can also access online materials that we provided to support and promote the campaign.
