Safety

This section provides an understanding of the factors that contribute to a sense of safety for older Australians.

The vast majority of our participants reported that they did feel safe, with few having experienced situations themselves that threatened their safety. Concern over one’s safety was generally triggered by stories or reading media reports of local incidents.
