Seniors Legal-Aid Diaries

A free 2023 Legal Topics for Seniors Wall Calendar is also available for seniors which includes important dates such as the NSW Seniors Festival, Grandparents Day and the school holidays.

Member for Oatley and Minister for Seniors, Mark Coure said the 2023 Seniors Diary, produced annually by Legal Aid NSW, includes practical tips and information about common issues impacting seniors.

“These annual seniors diaries have become a staple within our local community as they provide important information of legal issues relevant to our seniors community.” Mr Coure said.

“The information in the Legal Topics for Seniors Diary helps seniors to understand their rights, and details where they can access advice and support if they are experiencing discrimination, elder abuse or financial exploitation.”

“The Legal Aid diary provides simple yet effective tips to help seniors stay up-to-date.”

“In this day and age, it can be hard to keep on top of everything we need to do or be across.”

“The diary and calendar speaks directly to seniors with topics and information to help them know when to take action on certain matters, or even act as a prompt to make sure their affairs are in order.”

The information in the diary and calendar could potentially help seniors avoid costly scams and start important conversations about wills and planning for the future.

The Seniors Diary and Seniors Calendar are some of the most important resources produced by Legal Aid NSW, helping seniors to understand and defend their rights.
