World Elder Abuse Awareness Day 2021
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day occurs on 15 June each year. This issue remains a grave concern for the community and appears to have worsened during the COVID-19 pandemic. QLS Proctor has assembled articles that paint a disturbing picture of the current state of elder abuse in Australia.
Focus on voluntary assisted dying
QLS Proctor looks at how voluntary assisted dying is expected to work, and republishes a 2019 special feature that offered a range of viewpoints on this topical subject.
Community legal volunteers
Volunteering Queensland – the state’s chief non-profit volunteer and community engagement organisation – estimates that as many as 700,000 of the state’s 5.18 million people give freely of their time each year to make an extraordinary impact on the people, communities and environments in which they live.
