UnitingCare Australia appreciates the opportunity to provide feedback on the Elder Abuse Discussion Paper prepared by the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC).
This submission builds upon feedback that UnitingCare Australia previously supplied in response to the ALRC on the Elder Abuse Issues Paper. It reiterates many of the issues and themes raised in that submission, in addition to commenting on the proposals forwarded for consideration by the ALRC. This response draws on input from the broader UnitingCare service network, most particularly from UnitingCare Queensland, Resthaven and Kildonan UnitingCare, as well as from UnitingCare Australia’s Aged Care Network.
A fortnightly newsletter from Acting National Director Martin J. Cowling
The UnitingCare network’s approach to older people is guided and informed by the United Nations Principles for Older Persons which focus on Independence, Participation, Care, Self-fulfilment and Dignity and by an overall safe church approach to ensure the protection of vulnerable people.
