Rotary Safe Families has been created by two Rotarians who want to make a positive difference to the world by the prevention of family violence in particular violence against women and their children and elder abuse. Safe Families seeks to enable everyone to be equipped to “Identify”, “Be Informed”, “Support in Prevention” and “Make Referral”.
Safe Families offers a comprehensive resource kit targeting Rotarians and Rotary activities, workplaces and the broader community. In particular, there is fantastic information contained within sections 4.8 and 4.9 of the manual and from page 10 of the toolkit that seeks to address the question: “What can I do?” – building the capacity of the individual to be able to assist someone who may be experiencing elder abuse, or to join in elder abuse prevention efforts. This is complimented by a series of videos, including one which focuses exclusively on the issue of elder abuse, available HERE.
