The General Purpose Standing Committee No. 2 Report no. 44 titled ‘Elder abuse in NSW’. This report, available on their website, was tabled with the Clerk of the Legislative Council on 24 June 2016.
The report and it’s 11 recommendations are now with the Government for consideration. Recommendation 9 is relating to Financial Abuse and raising awareness, through education, of financial institutions. Very proud to say that the report recommends Capacity Australia’s e-tool, which helps in identifying financial abuse and dementia.
In relation to our commitment with education and raising awareness we are hosting a workshop, next month at The Boardroom, MLC North Sydney, on 12th August, 2016.
