World Elder Abuse Awareness Campaign
ABOUT THE EVENT:
Elder abuse is a growing concern, especially in light of the ageing population in Singapore. In commemoration of the World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) on 15 June, PAVE partnered with 3 constituencies namely the Yio Cho Kang Constituency, Teck Ghee Constituency and Pasir Ris West Constituency in putting up posters in the neighbourhood. A total of 430 posters were put up on notice boards as part of PAVE’s ongoing efforts to promote awareness of elder abuse in the community. The posters are designed to educate members of the public about what the signs of elder abuse are and where they may seek help. Let us continue to be the eyes and ears of the vulnerable. Elder abuse: make it visible.
