The NSW Ageing and Disability Commission is an independent agency of the NSW government, established 1 July 2019.
Our role is to better protect older people and adults with disability from abuse, neglect and exploitation in their family, home and community.
The ADC fills a critical gap that was not previously addressed by other complaint and investigative bodies in NSW. We work closely with other government and non-government organisations to support information sharing and referral pathways in order to ensure any older person or adult with disability is protected from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
The former Elder Abuse Helpline and Resource Unit (EAHRU) is part of the ADC, and is now the NSW Ageing and Disability Abuse Helpline. The number has remained the same:

We acknowledge Aboriginal people as the First Nations Peoples of NSW and pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future.
Informed by lessons of the past, the Ageing and Disability Commission is improving how we work with Aboriginal people and communities. We listen and learn from the knowledge, strength and resilience of Stolen Generations Survivors, Aboriginal Elders and Aboriginal communities.
