All older people in Australia should enjoy the same high standards of care. Unfortunately, this is not the case for many older people who experience deep and persistent disadvantage. Addressing this issue, an inter-agency Aged Care Reference Group (‘Reference Group’) has provided a submission of recommendations to the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. Read the full Submission, which outlines the issues and recommendations in more detail, here

June 15 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD). Elder abuse, whilst seldom talked about, is more common than we know. It may be perpetrated by a family member, friend, neighbour or carer, and may take various forms, such as physical abuse, psychological or emotional abuse, financial abuse, sexual abuse or neglect.

The Victorian Government’s $9.8 million funding to extend the emergency accommodation of people experiencing homelessness during the COVID-19 pandemic, and plan pathways into longterm housing, is a positive step towards the goal of every Victorian having access to safe and secure housing, says Jesuit Social Services.
The first round of grants from Catholic Emergency Relief Australia to support the ongoing recovery from last summer’s bushfires has been awarded. With at least $100,000 available, 24 groups applied for approximately $400,000 in funding to support various programs and projects across New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia. Fifteen organisations were successful in seeking grants, receiving a total of $110,000 to support trauma counselling and mental health, as well as community-building initiatives.
