Elder Abuse Action Australia (EAAA) is the national voice for action to eliminate elder abuse through systemic advocacy and policy development, best practice and research, and education and capacity building. EAAA is a specialist organisation with knowledge of issues that impact older people and their families, communities and broader society. Our board represents advocacy groups and individuals who are strong advocates on elder abuse in their jurisdictions.
Participants at previous National Elder Abuse conferences, advocated the need for a national and collegiate approach to working on elder abuse and in 2018, the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department recognised the need for a national approach.
Elder Abuse Action Australia (EAAA) aims are to:
Develop and promote systemic policy reforms regarding elder abuse to national government, non-government institutions and the business community;
Raise community awareness and educate the community regarding elder abuse; and
Communicate, share and co-ordinate information, resources and practice for national consistency and efficiency.
