Campaigning

Petition sits at 660 - we can do better than this. Most people believe elder abuse is a crime. It isn’t. The majority of abusers go unpunished, and those who are prosecuted often receive lenient sentences. The punishment very rarely fits the crime. We want to make elder abuse an 'aggravated offence' like Hate Crime.Help us.
