Elder Abuse - Your family and your home
In this webinar we speak with a senior solicitor and social worker from the Legal Aid NSW Elder Abuse Service about elder abuse that can occur in the family and home. It's not uncommon for older people to find themselves sharing their home with an adult child. To fit with the Seniors Festival 2021 theme, 'In our Nature', we will explore emerging legal themes and challenges, particularly when an older person is sharing their home with an adult child and how community and support workers can help.
Banks unite to help customers experiencing financial abuse

Connections and Community - A Sense of Belonging ONLINE LAUNCH
Join us for the online launch of our 50+ Report: Connections and Community - A Sense of Belonging
Our connection to community can provide a sense of belonging, feelings of trust and safety, and foster togetherness. Across the world, the pandemic has brought into sharp focus the strengths and weaknesses of communities and their ability to come together to support and protect the most vulnerable people in our communities.
The findings of this survey demonstrate that we are fortunate - that in most cases we have communities that are cohesive and that came together during this challenging time to connect with and support one-another.
COTA NSW will be launching our 50+ Report 'Connections and Community: a sense of belonging' on Thursday 8 April from 10am-11am. It will be a virtual launch.
