Action on Elder Abuse

Action on Elder Abuse logo

Our vision is a society which values older people and one in which they and other adults can live free from abuse perpetrated by those in whom they have an expectation of trust. Where such abuse occurs we seek an environment in which it can be quickly identified and addressed.

Unlike other ‘older people’s organisations’, we focus exclusively on the issue of elder abuse, not as one issue among many, but as a single focus to our work. For this reason we have extensive expertise that is not available from any other charity or agency.

Opening times:
Our Freephone confidential helpline is open Monday to Friday, between the hours of 9am and 5pm (excluding Bank Holidays).
