Seniors Rights Legal Clinic
The Seniors Rights Legal Clinic (SRLC) was established by PILCH as one of the services provided by Seniors Rights Victoria (SRV). The SRLC is a specialist legal service designed to respond to and prevent elder abuse and to assist clients with other issues associated with ageing.
Legal assistance is provided by pro bono lawyers at four health and allied health services throughout metropolitan Melbourne to ensure easy access by clients and facilitate referrals from service providers with whom clients already have a relationship of trust.
The SRLC also undertakes law reform and advocacy initiatives and community and legal education activities to promote and protect the human rights of older people and help to improve their ability to age with respect and dignity.
If you are are an older person (or someone assisting an older person) with a legal matter relating to elder abuse or other issues associated with ageing, please call the SRLC to make an appointment on 03 8636 4408.
