The Australian Government has joined with the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS) and the National Aging Research Institute (NARI) to evaluate its National Plan to Respond to the Abuse of Older Australians.
"This project involves an evaluation of Australia’s first National Plan to Respond to the Abuse of Older Australians (Elder Abuse) 2019–2023 (the National Plan). The National Plan was developed to co-ordinate efforts across Commonwealth, states and territories to address elder abuse," reads an introduction to the survey.
"The purpose of this project is to evaluate the impact of the National Plan in driving responses to reduce and prevent the abuse of older Australians, with the aim of generating evidence to: a) assess the value of the current National Plan, and b) inform the future planning of similar activities beyond 2023," it continues.
The survey has 65 questions in total and takes between 20-30 minutes to complete. It can be accessed here.
The survey's introductory page also includes further information about the survey itself, including matters of privacy and confidentiality.
Please consider completing the survey and circulating to your networks and others. The results of the survey will inform the next National Plan, including funding.Image at top: Australian Government, Attorney-General's Department
