Here’s the abstract:
Catalyst Foundation Catalyst Foundation (formerly Seniors Information Service) provides trustworthy and timely information support and advice to South Australian seniors, their families and carers in the area of ageing. In our new broader capacity, built on experience and expertise of 21 years of service, our new vision has expanded in the area of disability, learning, lifestyle and business and employment services. Project Summary The primary focus of My Mediation Options Project – A CALD Perspective, is on raising awareness of the types and prevalence of elder abuse and of preventative services for CALD seniors who are at risk of or experiencing domestic violence or elder abuse. It will increase the awareness, capacity and effectiveness of service providers and community groups, enabling them to prevent and respond more effectively to domestic violence and abuse towards CALD seniors. The project will build the confidence and capacity of CALD seniors to make informed decisions. Through a community survey, community champions program, train the trainer sessions and raising awareness and providing information, this project will improve engagement between organisations and will support communities to utilise practical solutions including mediation strategies for dealing with issues of domestic violence and elder abuse
