Professional education

To build relationships with those working directly with older people, Seniors Rights Victoria provides limited Professional Education sessions to service providers, agencies and other organisations. This enables professionals and staff to identify incidences of elder abuse and respond appropriately.

A Professional Education session provides information on ageism, the main drivers of elder abuse, a basic overview of elder abuse, including the different types, prevalence, risks and prevention, indicators and professional responsibilities. The session also contains information on the services and support available through Seniors Rights Victoria, including secondary consultations.

The session takes a minimum of one hour, including time for questions.

Seniors Rights Victoria provides elder abuse Professional Education where there’s a genuine interest by professionals and staff to improve their knowledge and practice. We are not able to fulfil an organisation’s accreditation requirements.

Currently, we offer Professional Education free of charge.

If you would like to discuss elder abuse professional education needs for your agency/organisation or have any questions please contact:


If you, or someone you know is experiencing elder abuse, help is available through our confidential helpline on 1300 368 821. If it is an emergency, call 000.
