Workshop: Understanding financial elder abuse

February 8 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM

Free

Did you know that financial abuse is one of the most common forms of elder abuse? Older people from migrant and refugee backgrounds can be particularly vulnerable due to a lack of awareness and barriers in accessing services.

ECCV and Financial Counselling Victoria (FCVic) is hosting an online information session on
8 February at 4pm-5.30pm to help you learn more about financial elder abuse and how to support seniors.

This interactive workshop will provide information about seniors’ financial rights, and how seniors can access resources and support services, including financial counsellors.

This workshop is aimed at multicultural seniors’ group leaders, bicultural workers, and community leaders.

The speakers will be:

  • Lyn Dundon – Project Coordinator, Financial Counselling Victoria
  • Michele Padbury – Financial Counsellor, VincentCare Victoria

You must register to attend this session. Registrants will be provided with a Zoom meeting link.
