IMPORTANT - video duration:
Twitter lets you post video up to 140 seconds long (it has a simple editing tool to help you choose the video section you wish to use). To stay within Twitter’s 140-seconds video limit, you could remove the credits or remove Chris Boundy’s introduction. His intro could be used as a separate Twitter video post if you wish.
Newsletter and Email promotion
Here is some suggested wording to help you and your supporters highlight the video/s through newsletters, emails and through other means. The video hyperlink goes to the 10-minute film on the APEA homepage. If you want to link just to your 3-minute film, please edit the hyperlink accordingly.
(alternative headline) Free services to protect older South Australians
An alliance of five SA agencies has created a new video to give a quick overview of free services that are available to address elder abuse. Our organisation (insert your agency’s name) is featured in the film. Click here to watch it.
The video provides practical information to protect people’s physical, emotional, mental and financial wellbeing. It informs older South Australians, as well as their families and carers, about services relating to Wills, home security, Advance Care Directives, guardianship, legal help and other assistance for older people.
The video was made by the Alliance for the Prevention of Elder Abuse. The Alliance includes the following agencies: Public Trustee, the Office of the Public Advocate, SA Police, the Legal Services Commission, and the Aged Rights Advocacy Service.
We encourage you to share this video to ensure it reaches as many South Australians as possible.
