It’s Not Right! Changing Social Norms of Bystanders on Abuse of Older Adults

In 2009, The Centre for Research & Education on Violence against Women & Children (CREVAWC) received funding by the Public Health Agency of Canada to adapt the Ontario domestic violence public education campaign, Neighbours, Friends and Families for abuse of older adults. Additional funding was received from Hew Horizons to develop a pan-Canadian approach on engaging bystanders on the issue of older adult abuse and neglect. The resource materials produced from this project provide education to people about what they can do to prevent and assist older adults who may be experiencing abuse.
