Seniors Rights Victoria (SRV) has been working on the Planning Ahead project as part of the Victorian Government's Integrated Services Fund (ISF), since 2018. Administered by the Federation of Community Legal Centres (FCLC), the ISF is special funding for projects that have an early intervention focus, as well as involving integrated services.
SRV's Planning Ahead Project helps people understand the need to plan ahead, in order to protect their rights and wishes as they get older, to reduce the risk of elder abuse. The project also supports carers and loved ones of people as they age, to ensure they understand how best to support them.
SRV has begun engagement in Shepparton whilst continuing to work with service providers and community organisations in Ballarat and other regional areas. Learn more about this initiative here.
