About us

shutterstock_135215249_closeupblue_eyesSeniors Rights Victoria provides information, support, advice and education to help prevent elder abuse and safeguard the rights, dignity and independence of older people.

Elder abuse is any act which causes harm to an older person and is carried out by someone they know and trust such as family or friends. If you, your client or someone you know is experiencing elder abuse, please contact our free, confidential Helpline: 1300 368 821.

Seniors Rights Victoria was established in 2008. It is a program within the Council of the Ageing Vic (COTA) and governed by its board. Funding is provided by Victoria Legal Aid and the Department of Health and Human Services. Seniors Rights Victoria works in partnership with Justice Connect and the Eastern Community Legal Centre.
