The Royal Commission into Family Violence reported that elder abuse is an under-reported form of family violence that requires a unique response. This breakfast will explore the Victorian Government’s family violence reform agenda and its implications for older people and elder abuse. The session will showcase a number of initiatives already underway across the state and highlight what is next for making sure that older people get the support they need.

Speakers will include:

  • Sharon Knight MP, Parliamentary Secretary for Human Services and chair of the Victorian Government Elder Abuse Advisory Group
  • Sue Clifford, Chief Executive Officer, Family Safety Victoria
  • Gerard Mansour, Commissioner for Senior Victorians and Ambassador for Elder Abuse Prevention
  • Dean McWhirter, Assistant Commissioner, ¬†Family Violence Command, Victoria Police

Formal invitations to the forum and breakfast events will be sent out shortly.

We acknowledge the Wurundjeri people and other peoples of the Kulin nation as the traditional owners of the land on which our work in the community takes place. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
