Action on Elder Abuse

This national charity focuses exclusively on issues relating to the abuse of older people and provides support to more than 15,000 elderly victims a year.

In its February 2015 meeting of Trustees, the Foundation awarded a grant of £7,902 towards the salary of a helpline operator. The helpline offers compassion, emotional support, a friendly ear and practical advice and solutions to help empower the older person and keep them safe.
