Elder Abuse Service Trials Funding Round

The Australian Government is inviting applications via a restricted competitive process to apply to deliver services under the Justice Services Program – Protecting the Rights of Older Australians – Elder Abuse Service Trials, across Australia from 2018-19 to 2021-22.

The Service Trials will increase access to service and support options for those directly experiencing elder abuse, and depending on the particular circumstances, their broader families.

The intended outcome of the program is to reduce the incidence and severity of elder abuse through the provision of information and support (including social, legal and financial counselling) which is designed to meet the specific needs of the individual being assisted. It will achieve this through creating new support options which were not previously available (including through expanding current services so that they can support more people).
