“It’s Not Right” – Changing the Conversation to Stop Abuse of Older Adults

Become one of our 2017 Champions for Social Change

In collaboration with the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat, Elder Abuse Ontario and Western University invite you to be part of a provincial initiative to engage our citizens in challenging social norms and encouraging bystander interventions in support of at-risk seniors.

What YOU can do to get involved:

Contact us to register for a one-day workshop in your region (below)

At the one-day regional workshop,

  • You will learn about It’s Not Right! Neighbours, Friends and Families for Older Adults (INR-NFF) – a proven, high performing education and engagement tool
  • You will meet other passionate advocates and professionals who have been identified as leaders and influencers
  • Together, we will set highly ‘do-able’ goals and make a coordinated regional plan to engage your community
  • You will take-away the INR-NFF tools and materials to be able to deliver presentations. Each participant will commit to delivering a minimum of 3 INR-NFF presentations by March 2018 and supporting the roll-out of their regional plan.

There is no cost for registration or for the materials.
