Welcome to Respect for Seniors

Respect for Seniors is a grassroots campaign that empowers individuals and communities to share the vision of a more respectful society. Our goal is to create a safe, caring community where we can all age with dignity and respect.

Through this campaign we can tackle issues of ageism (a lack of respect for older people) which devalues and disempowers older people. Promoting age friendly communities, in which abuse is not tolerated, should be one of the goals in our Australian culture. A fair go for all – no matter how old! If you agree, then take a look at what you can do.

This campaign hopes to increase awareness of the diversity of interpretations of 'respect'. Through listening to other’s perspectives, individuals will have the experience of giving and receiving respect through the mutual exchange of ideas.
