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.
