This toolkit enables NSW local councils to drive continued and sustainable action to prevent and respond to abuse, neglect and exploitation of older people and adults with disability in their family, home and community.
Ending Abuse through Simple Interventions has been designed and informed by practices that are known to strengthen community capacity and raise awareness about abuse of older people and adults with disability in their family, home and community.
The Ageing and Disability Commission encourages all organisations and services to consider what works for them and their community to better detect and respond to abuse. In particular, we believe that local councils play a significant role in supporting initiatives that better protect and promote of the rights of older people and adults with disability in their local area to live free from abuse.
These community profiles outline reports received by the Ageing and Disability Commission over a 12 month period. Use these profiles to inform initiatives in your area that better protect older people and adults with disability from abuse, neglect and exploitation in their family, home and community.

We acknowledge Aboriginal people as the First Nations Peoples of NSW and pay our respects to Elders past, present, and future.
Informed by lessons of the past, the Ageing and Disability Commission is improving how we work with Aboriginal people and communities. We listen and learn from the knowledge, strength and resilience of Stolen Generations Survivors, Aboriginal Elders and Aboriginal communities.
