Ensure you are part of making change ... View draft program!

Seniors Rights Service is delighted to host the 5th National Elder Abuse Conference. The 2018 Conference comes at a pivotal moment in terms of Australia’s response to elder abuse. In mid-2017 the Australian Law Reform Commission reported on its findings from one of Australia’s largest public inquiries into elder abuse. Also, in recent years there have been a number of high profile elder abuse cases that have received national media attention, as well as reports of systemic neglect of older people, highlighting the urgent necessity of addressing the issue. 

Those working on the frontline providing elder abuse prevention and support programs know these familiar stories all too well. However the conversation is broadening – increasingly more stakeholders across multiple sectors are focussing on minimising the risk and stopping elder abuse within our society.

We look forward to bringing over 500 people together to exchange ideas, solutions and experiences at the 2018 Conference where delegates will work together making change.

The Conference Program Committee is delighted with the high quality and quantity of abstracts received from applicants keen to present their projects, ideas and experiences at the Conference.
