Elder Abuse Bicultural Community Education Training

In collaboration with SRV, ECCV conducts free Elder Abuse Bicultural Community Educator training sessions for people working with CALD seniors, support services or community organisations.

Once they have completed their training, ECCV also supports bicultural community educators to deliver culturally and linguistically appropriate information sessions to raise awareness of elder abuse in their communities and direct them to the appropriate support services available in Victoria.

The training was adapted in response to COVID-19 restrictions in 2020 and now also runs online.

If you or someone you know is experiencing elder abuse, help is available through Senior Rights Victoria’s confidential helpline on 1300 368 821. If you require an interpreter, please call the Translating and Interpreting Service on 131 450 and ask them to call the helpline.

Seniors Rights Victoria provides information, support, advice and education to help prevent elder abuse and safeguard the rights, dignity and independence of older people.

You can also call 1800ELDERHelp (1800 353 374) for free and confidential support, or visit Australian Human Right Commission for translated resources to share with your community.
