It’s Not Right Presenters

Its Not Right

INR-NFF is a one-day workshop (with the flexibility of a variety of session length options, tailored to meet the needs of your group) designed to educate and engage bystanders everywhere. The emphasis in the workshops is on teaching neighbours, friends and family members of seniors who may be experiencing abuse to recognize the warning signs and then to take small practical steps to help that are safe and respectful. Scenarios taken from life, with a range of possible responses, are included in the workshop to support the learning objectives.

Our belief is that no one organization has a broad enough scope to address the complex issue of elder abuse in its entirety. A truly effective community response involves many stakeholders working in collaboration.
