Seniors Rights Victoria is a free and confidential service. When you call our service one of our experienced advocates will answer your enquiry.
We recognise that you have the right to make your own choices and we will listen to your enquiry and concerns sensitively and patiently. We’ll help you understand your rights and assist you in finding a solution to resolve your enquiry or concern.
At Seniors Rights Victoria we can offer you both non-legal and legal assistance. If your concern requires more attention than the initial call, an appointment will be made for one of our advocates and one of our community lawyers to call you back. They will work with you to understand the issues and provide you with options to consider. Our advocate and community lawyer will work to assist you to achieve these.
