We're part of the organisation Action on Elder Abuse, who work across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. We were the first charity to address elder abuse and remain the only charity in the United Kingdom working exclusively on the issue today.
We have the expertise to support victims, their families, and those who care for them.
