Elder abuse prevention

The theme of the 2021 elder abuse prevention campaign is 'Together we can stop elder abuse'.

If you suspect that an older person in your life is experiencing abuse, call the Elder Abuse Helpline on 1300 651 192 for free, confidential information and referrals. Helpline operators are available between 9am to 5pm weekdays.

You can help raise awareness of elder abuse and the helpline support service by sharing and displaying these downloadable campaign materials.
