NSW Ageing and Disability Abuse Helpline

The abuse of older people is a globally recognised issue that is increasingly becoming more prevalent. Research suggests that as many as 50,000 older people in NSW may have experienced some form of abuse and only one in five cases is reported. In the majority of cases the alledged abusers of older people turn out to be trusted family members, neighbours and paid carers. A range of tools exist to help better understand how to prevent abuse, neglect and exploitation.

  • Suspected abuse can be reported through the Ageing and Disability Helpline 1800 628 221 (Mon – Fri 9-5)
