Welcome to Action on Elder Abuse Scotland Challenging harm & abuse of older people Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) Scotland works to protect older people from harm, abuse and neglect. We support those experiencing (or at risk of) harm, as well as raising awareness and advocating effective prevention. We’re part of the organisation, Action on Elder Abuse, who work across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and we were the first charity to address elder abuse and the only charity in the UK working on the issue exclusively today.

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're in the early stages of setting up the first project in Fife, with plans to roll it out to other areas of Scotland. Your donation will help with the ongoing costs of the project in Fife.
