Our Elder Abuse Recovery project is a unique way of helping people who have suffered abuse. It builds upon our successful projects in England (the Elder Abuse Recovery Service), so we have a tried and tested model to build upon in Scotland. The project involves recruiting and training volunteers who want to practically assist in challenging and addressing harm and abuse of older people within their local area. The volunteers are paired with victims of elder abuse to help them recover from the experience and regain control over their lives.

We plan to set up the first project in Fife, and then roll it out to other areas of Scotland. Your donation will help us to deliver the first pilot project in Fife.
