New Elder Abuse Prevention Network

SMPCP is excited to announce that we have been selected as the lead agency to establish an Elder Abuse Prevention Network (EAPN) within our catchment.

The Royal Commission into Family Violence recognised elder abuse as a particular form of family violence and developed a number of recommendations to tackle this important and under-reported issue. The Elder Abuse Prevention and Response Initiative is part of the Victorian government's response to these recommendations.This includes funding for the establishment of 10 elder abuse prevention networks to collaborate at a community level and focus on the prevention of elder abuse.
