This National Volunteer Week, Seniors Rights Victoria is celebrating the enormous impact of its volunteer speakers, who helped deliver 93 education sessions to some 3,121 participants across Victoria this year.
June 15 marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. There will be events and activities around Victoria, including information sessions and forums on topics from how to recognise elder abuse, to how to protect your rights and where to find help.
Seniors Rights Victoria welcomes the appointment of Toni Law to the position of Advocacy Team Leader. Toni is very excited to continue to assist older people to live in safety, be treated with dignity and respect, make their own decisions and have their voices heard.
We want to support the Victorian Government to continue to play a significant role in ensuring that older people, particularly those with complex needs or those experiencing significant disadvantage, are able to access the support and services they need within their communities.
Within our organisation there are two areas of gambling that impact on our service and our work with older people: problem gamblers turning to older parents and older people (and vulnerable groups) targeted through inappropriate marketing strategies.
