Preventing Abuse of Older People in Melbourne's East
Preventing Abuse of Older People in Melbourne's East is a Framework developed by the Eastern Community Legal Centre (ECLC) in partnership with the Eastern Elder Abuse Network (EEAN).
By applying the learnings from the Older People, Equity, Respect and Ageing (OPERA) project, this tool seeks to provide consistent messaging and language, and presents a shared framework for action.
This Framework is designed to be used by a range of people wanting to see and impact change for a healthier, more equitable future including:
- EEAN partners
- community groups,
- and government
This work aligns with regional work to promote gender equity and prevent violence against women (Together for Equality & Respect partnership) as well as local councils’ role to promote healthy ageing through inclusive and liveable communities.
