Fundraising is a great way to show your support for Action on Elder Abuse while raising much needed funds for the charity.
As a small national organisation we rely on the support of our fundraisers to finance many of our projects, and all of our work makes a difference
to some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
Whatever you decide to do as a fundraiser we will fully support you with advice and guidance and publicity for your event. We will connect you with the online systems that allow you to promote your event and also keep track of how much you have collected. And you have fun too!
On these pages you'll find a number of great ways to get involved, so choose your option and help make a difference.
There are many activities you can do to get involved, from coffee mornings, arranging to hold information stalls at your local shopping centre,
taking a collection on the day, having speakers at your local church groups, and even more energetic things such as skydiving or running races.
All these activities help to raise awareness in your community on the issues surrounding elder abuse, as well as bringing in vital income for the
charity. We can send you further ideas and suggestions either through the post or via email – just let us know which one suits you best,
or you have a look at this page to see what other people are doing. You can also set up online fundraising pages and sponsorship forms
