An elder abuse perspective on “Strong Foundations”: Building on Victoria’s Work to End Family Violence

Key actions put forward include:

  • improve data collection and research to better capture the impact of elder abuse in culturally and linguistically diverse communities

  • increase elder abuse financial counselling support, both as part of the multidisciplinary legal teams at community legal centres and more broadly

  • design and implement supports and services for older people who lack decision-making capacity and who are at risk of or experiencing elder abuse

  • develop and implement guidelines, education, and resources on best practice approaches in substitute and supported decision-making
