Facebook Page Block
The Older Persons Advocacy Network has unfortunately been blocked from Facebook as part of its ban on Australians seeing or posting news content on its site. As a federal-government funded charity and non-profit organisation providing vital advocacy and support to vulnerable people in our community, we are working to resolve this issue. If you or someone you know is in need of advocacy and support in aged care, call us on 1800 700 600. We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause.
“OPAN provides vital information to older people, families and their representatives – some of the most vulnerable in the community. We’re a charity, and we are independent of government and news organisations. At a time when we are trying to inform older people about their rights in aged care and how to make informed choices about COVID and the COVID vaccine this sort of blanket approach and action by Facebook is highly irresponsible. The public health impact could be significant and they need to rethink their strategy immediately” – Craig Gear, CEO
