Funded by the Australian Government and developed by Elder Abuse Action Australia, COMPASS – Guiding Action on Elder Abuse is a national online resource incorporating the best resources the sector has to offer in relation to understanding and taking action on elder abuse. It was developed by content experts and tested with users. The launch of COMPASS is an important action for the Australian Government meeting its commitment under The National Plan to Respond to the Abuse of Older Australians (Elder Abuse) 2019-2023.
