Overview: Education

Education is integral to Seniors Rights Service. One of our key roles is to raise awareness about the rights of older people. Our aged care advocates, solicitors and education staff travel across NSW giving talks to aged care recipients and the wider community.

We hold information sessions at community groups, clubs, social and professional groups, aged care homes and retirement villages. We also organise forums and discussion panels. These sessions are offered to service providers, service users, relatives and carers, as well as in-home service providers, seniors groups, professional groups and others.

Seniors Rights Service provides information, publications and advice at seniors’ expos, open days, forums and conferences. We also deliver online information sessions and webinars and have a range of events that are streamed live.

We reach around 28,000 people a year through our community forums and education events. Understanding that a “one size fits all” method does not work, we tailor our approach according to the needs of different communities and cultural sensitivities.
