World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) happens each year on 15 June. It was established by the United Nations, following representations by
our international partners INPEA (the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse). AEA are the coordinators within the UK and we
provide help, support and guidance for individuals and organisations wishing to take part.
It is about all of us working together to bring greater recognition of the mistreatment of older adults wherever they live throughout the world and to highlight the need for appropriate action. It is intended to give abuse and neglect of older adults a global relevance that will sustain and move prevention efforts forward throughout the whole year and years to come.
Each year individuals and organisations come together to raise awareness of elder abuse and to fundraise for AEA. It represents the one day in the year when the whole world voices its opposition to the abuse and suffering that is inflicted on some of our older generations. And the UK always plays its part in voicing that opposition.
