Seniors Rights Service

In February 2018, Senior Rights Service hosted the 5th National Elder Abuse Conference. The Conference culminated in an announcement by the Attorney-General, the Hon Christian Porter that a National Plan would be developed to ensure the protection of older people in the Australian community.

To further the conversations generated by the conference, Seniors Rights Service engaged Ellen Fanning to conduct a series of interviews with experts who attended the conference. These videos, along with a discussion sheet for each video, are freely available to community members, professionals and students of all sectors, to enable engagement with the content using suggested discussion questions and to follow up with further reading.
