Submission: Inquiry into elder abuse in NSW

The NSW Legislative Council is holding an inquiry into elder abuse. The TU argues in its submission that elder abuse is more than an action between two people with unequal power in a situation of trust. We argue that government policies and practices can also lead to elder abuse. We identify the forced re-location of social housing tenants from Millers Point in Sydney as elder abuse in this way.
