Welcome to our website

Action on Elder Abuse (AEA):
We work to protect, and prevent the abuse of, vulnerable older adults and by doing so we also protect other adults a risk of abuse. We were the first charity to address these problems and are the only charity in the UK and in Ireland working exclusively on the issue today. Consequently, when you provide support to us, or make a donation, you can be sure that it will be used exclusively on issues relating to elder abuse and nothing else.

Our work is fundamental to challenging elder abuse:
In the UK we constantly need financial support to continue our activities. Although we are as effective as many of the bigger charities, we receive only a fraction of their income. Help us continue to make a difference. There are a variety of options for making donations to us. Use text on your mobile phone, the JustGiving logo, or click on the 'Support us' link to find out more. Together we can end elder abuse.
