Forum 2: Driving Long-Term Change – Australia's Response to Elder Abuse
This forum will discuss what Australia has achieved and what more must be done to end elder abuse since the Australian Law Reform Commission’s “Elder Abuse – A National Legal Response” report was released in June 2017, and the release of the Commonwealth’s “National Plan to Respond to the Abuse of Older Australians (Elder Abuse) 2019-2023” in March 2019. The webinar is the second in the Walk the Talk Forum Series 2021. These important conversations will continue in the 7th National Elder Abuse Conference in Hobart in February next year.

LGBTQIA65+ Equality at Every Age Webinar
Julie McCrossin AM moderates a diverse panel of members from the Rainbow community as they explore the particular characteristics and vulnerabilities of older LGBTQIA+ people and talk about real life examples of elder abuse in their community and how they are planning to stay happy and healthy as they age.
Sponsored by Elder Abuse Action Australia (EAAA) and LGBTIQ+ Health Australia, this webinar seeks to explore the impact of elder abuse within the LGBTQIA+ communities and to also promote sources of information, resources and service providers that are accessible and friendly to the LGBTQIA+ community.
Join the discussion and ask our panel members to share the steps they are taking personally to protect themselves from abuse as they age and to offer hope, while raising awareness about the importance of self-protection as individuals and as a community.
