The Commonwealth Bank launched the Safe and Savvy awareness program to help Australian seniors protect themselves from financial abuse.
Safe and Savvy is designed to help safeguard Australian seniors and their families from elder abuse, fraud and online scams. It was developed in collaboration and consultation with seniors’ rights advocates, subject matter experts and elder abuse support service organisations.
