Paint the town purple!
Every year we here at ARAS mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) with a conference for aged care professionals to reinforce the message: ‘There’s No Excuse For Abuse’
Please join us this year in spreading this important message throughout your community.
Stand Up and Speak Out about abuse of older people and demonstrate your support by holding an event to mark WEAAD on or leading up to 15th June 2020.
