Elder Abuse Action Australia

Conference Host

Elder Abuse Action Australia (EAAA) was established to confront the often hidden problem of discrimination, neglect and mistreatment of older Australians.

As the national peak body, EAAA campaigns for a society that respects and values older Australians.

We seek to create meaningful change in addressing and eliminating the abuse of older people through advocacy, policy development, research and capacity building.

Elder abuse is a complex issue but our path forward is simple. By speaking out against ageism and raising community awareness about defining, recognising and preventing elder abuse, our work will help to improve the lives of older Australians.
