Blacktown Multicultural Elder Abuse Prevention Forum

We all have a role to play in supporting older people from multicultural communities live free from abuse, neglect and exploitation
To acknowledge World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, the NSW Ageing and Disability Commission is hosting a learning and development forum for aged care and home care workers and related professionals to strengthen responses to, and raise awareness of, the abuse of older people living in culturally diverse communities.
The forum will bring together a panel with people from key services to:

  1. Talk about what they are identifying in the community in relation to abuse, and the barriers to reporting abuse within culturally diverse communities
  2. Discuss best practices across agencies to improve safeguards for older people
  3. Offer practical solutions on how you can provide culturally informed support

The panel will feature:

  • NSW Police
  • Older Women's Network
  • Seniors Rights Service
  • SydWest Multicultural Services
  • NSW Ageing and Disability Commission

We encourage those who work in the family, home and community aged care settings to attend and encourage participants to come prepared with questions for the panel.

This event has a capacity of 80 people and will not be live streamed.

Light refreshments will be provided.
RSVP by Friday 19th May 2023.

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.
