Gold Coast Elder Abuse Response Panel

Responding to elder abuse can very often require contact with a range of Government and community services, which can make navigating the various systems difficult even for experienced professionals. Complex elder abuse cases can therefore be difficult to tackle alone. This led to the formation of the Gold Coast Elder Abuse Panel, which functions to address complex elder abuse cases and work toward improving effective collaboration and communication across identified stakeholders.

The Gold Coast Elder Abuse Response Panel brings together government and community representatives to respond to complex elder abuse cases. The panel utilises a coordinated response drawing upon relevant stakeholders to consider appropriate intervention. 

The group is for hospital, community or individual workers, who work with older people that may be experiencing elder abuse. It supports people to respond to issues surrounding elder abuse, navigate systems and support people with challenging and complex cases.
