The Respecting Seniors Network is a group of committed individuals and organisations in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula area.
Our vision is to live and work in a community which respects older people and recognises that people of all ages deserve to live free from violence in all its forms.
We hope to create change in our community’s attitudes towards older people; with the aim of stopping elder abuse before it occurs.
Our work is directed and undertaken by our members, who live and/or work in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula area. Our members are a diverse range of individuals, community groups/clubs and businesses – both for profit and not-for-profit.
We are primarily funded by the Victorian Government which has funded nine other elder abuse prevention networks across the state. We acknowledge and thank the Victorian Government for supporting our work. We also rely on grants and other means of financial and in-kind support to continue to take the necessary action to realise the change we seek.
