What We Do

Through advocacy, community awareness campaigns and a high profile media presence, Greysafe works to prevent the abuse, neglect and exploitation of older Australians.

What you can do

We want to build lasting and sustainable change so that older Australians feel safe and valued. There are so many simple ways you can help make a lasting contribution to protecting our vulnerable elderly.

Campaigns

Our campaigns highlight systemic problems and their impact on vulnerable older Australians. We also aim to put forward well considered policy positions to ensure meaningful change takes place at the political level.

One Off Life Time Membership

We’ve seen the impact of abuse on older Australians and felt helpless when trying to assist the vulnerable escape this abuse and neglect from those that are supposedly caring for them. While the system recognises the abuse, exploitation and neglect of older Australians are issues needing to be addressed, meaningful change has been too slow or ineffective.

It is up to us, families of the abused and neglected, our friends, neighbours and the broader Australian community to lead the change.

Greysafe has made it our mission to highlight these issues and importantly, put forward solutions and initiatives to help protect and empower older Australians.
