The Ministry of Social Development will shortly be going to market with an open competitive tender to appoint a suitably qualified provider to deliver Elder Abuse Response Services (EARS) in the Marlborough region for approximately a term of two years and nine months.
EARS responds to the immediate needs of people aged 65 and over (older people) who are experiencing, or at risk of experiencing (or perceived to be experiencing), abuse and neglect.
EARS has a primary focus on intervention. This looks like providing direct assistance for older people experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, abuse and neglect. These interventions need to be culturally responsive, particularly to Māori, Pasifika peoples, and migrants. EARS also have a focus on preventing re-victimisation of older people experiencing abuse or neglect.
Please see the Advance Notice for further information.
