Information Sessions for CALD Seniors’ Groups
ECCV is committed to advocating for and supporting CALD seniors’ groups in Victoria. One of the ways we do this is to offer free information sessions on a range of issues designed to promote the health and wellbeing of group members and to improve the sustainability of the groups.
Each information session runs between 1 to 2 hours and is adapted to meet the needs of your group. Sessions are conducted in language where possible.
You can request one of the following information sessions for your seniors’ group:
Respectful Relationships for Seniors in our Community
This information session raises awareness about the rights of older people, helps to identify if older family members are being mistreated and provides information about appropriate support services. The session also raises awareness about what preventative measures people can put in place to ensure that their rights are being protected.

Participants will also learn how to arrange digital literacy training for the members of their seniors’ group on using their mobile phone, tablet (iPad) and computer to access social media, use Telehealth, shop online and stay safe on the internet.
