We’re Working Together to End Elder Abuse

What We Do

From supporting and protecting victims of elder abuse, to strengthening communities and enabling research, we work to end the exploitation, neglect and mistreatment of older people and build a fairer society.

Direct Services

Our multi-disciplinary, specialist teams are made up of professionals who review and respond to elder abuse. Hospital-based protection teams work to identify, report and address abuse among older patients, who may rarely leave their homes.

Family Support

Our confidential Helpline will give practical and emotional support to caregivers and people concerned about elder abuse. We will provide information, support and referrals for family, friends and neighbors.

Community Building

Our Students for Elder Justice program connects the generations and educates students so they can stand up against ageism. Through on-the-ground training in elder abuse prevention we are developing a new generation of advocates to carry the elder justice movement forward.

Research

We’re carrying out investigations into the prevalence of nursing home abuse and the financial exploitation of older people. These insights inform our work with individuals, communities and decision-makers. Our research makes doctors and nurses more effective in detecting abuse.
