Elder abuse awareness resources in Polish

Elder abuse is any act that harms older people and that is carried out by someone they know and should be able to trust such as family or friends. Such harm can be financial, physical, sexual, emotional or psychological, including mistreatment or neglect. ECCV would like to see suspected elder abuse in ethnic communities addressed within the context of cultural behaviours, values and expectations.

This three-year ECCV project aims to increase awareness of elder abuse in ethnic communities (2012-2015). ECCV will work in partnership with ethnic and multicultural organisations and Senior Rights Victoria to deliver culturally appropriate messages about elder abuse, its prevention and pathways to support.

ECCV has developed in-language resources for the Polish-speaking community.
