Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People

Established in 2011, the Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People was born out of the need to strengthen the rights and voice of older people globally. Today, GAROP is a network of over 380 members in around 80 countries worldwide, united in our work to strengthen and promote the rights of older persons. GAROP is governed by a global Steering Group elected by our members and its work is supported by a Secretariat Coordinator.

WHO WE ARE

The mission of the Global Alliance is to support and enhance civil society’s engagement at national, regional and international levels on the need for a new international instrument on the rights of older persons

The Global Alliance for the Rights of Older People seeks a world in which older persons live free from discrimination and are able to fully enjoy their rights.

Our core values are partnership with, inclusion of, and the promotion of participation by older people in decisions that affect their lives. We respect the rights of all persons regardless of age, race, color, disability, gender, language, religion, sexual orientation, political views, national or social origin, class and birth or property status.

  • Accessing grief and trauma support during COVID-19

    2020.10.28

    This webinar is organised by the Older Persons Advocacy Network Australia and will take place on Wednesday 28th October from 3pm-4pm AEDT.  COVID-19 has made life challenging for many and older Australians, their families, and those working in aged care have been some of the worst impacted. In response, the Federal Government has invested $12.4 million in a Grief and Trauma Response package to provide support for older Australians, their families, and aged care staff who have been affected by COVID-19.

    This webinar aims to ensure that everyone who needs support from this Response package can access it.
