Welcome to Elder Abuse Action Australia
Welcome to Elder Abuse Action Australia (EAAA), the new national peak established to respond to and prevent elder abuse. EAAA is committed to:
EAAA was incorporated in May of this year and since then we’ve been focused on establishing all aspects of the organisation including branding, administrative processes, internal policies, and procuring a consultant for the development of a Feasibility Study for an Elder Abuse Knowledge Hub.
The Feasibility for a Knowledge Hub
The Attorney General’s Department has engaged EAAA to co-design a Feasibility Study for a Knowledge Hub on elder abuse. The Knowledge Hub is intended for consumers and industry and the report is due at the end of the year. EAAA will be consulting with key stakeholders in October and November to ensure we capture and understand the issues and requirements from older Australians, their families and carers, in addition to sectors who interface with older Australians.
As you can see, our website is under development, and you’ll begin to see changes and FIND OUT MORE over the coming months.
EAAA looks forward to listening, acting and advocating for older Australians across government and industry. We welcome your ideas, feedback and insights into areas you feel need to be our focus. EAAA is small in number and we appreciate your patience as we work through the many priorities ahead.
