We continue to be most grateful to the many charitable trusts and foundations who have supported the charity for so many years.
Their contributions have enabled the organisation to fund essential services such as our helpline. We would like to thank the following trusts and
foundations for their recent support: the Bromley Trust, the Betty Lawes Foundation, WG Edwards Charitable Foundation, Rufford Maurice Lang
Foundation, Convent of Mercy, Sylvia Aitken Charitable Foundation, Bisgood Foundation, and Share Gift.
Although we have seen significant successes over the last few years to improve the lives of vulnerable older people, there remains a huge amount of work to do. The subject of elder abuse remains a hugely taboo topic with the general public, and we often struggle to attract support from this quarter. A donation from a trust or foundation can be made towards one aspect of our work, or towards the general operation of the charity. A grant of any size can greatly help to ensuring the charity’s activities remain of the highest standard and enable us to continue protecting vulnerable older people from harm.
If you are a trustee or administrator of a charitable trust or foundation, we would be happy to speak to you to discuss our unique and innovative outlook as the leading authority on elder abuse in the UK. Email - firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0208 835 9280 and talk to us.
There are a variety of ways that Trusts and Foundations can help us. Through the ongoing support of some of our regular funders we have got the issue of elder abuse into the public eye and onto the political agenda. But we need to do so much more, and we have so many projects waiting for funding.
