Elder abuse prevention network milestone

Seniors Rights Victoria recently led an interagency workshop about elder abuse as part of the Elder Abuse Prevention Network (EAPN) project, one of the Victorian Government’s preventative responses to the Royal Commission into Family Violence.

The Victorian Government is funding the establishment of 10 elder abuse networks to collaborate at a community level and focus on the prevention of elder abuse. Seniors Rights Victoria is supporting this work by conducting research on the project which began with the workshop and will continue until February 2019.

Partner networks chosen for the EAPN project so far are: Eastern Community Legal Centre, Ballarat Community Health Centre, South West Carers and Respite Services Network (Warrnambool), Macedon Ranges Shire Council and the Southern Melbourne Primary Care Partnership.
