Welcome to Action on Elder Abuse Northern Ireland

The Adult Safeguarding Charity

Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) Northern Ireland is a specialist charity working to protect older people from all forms of abuse and neglect.  We support those experiencing (or at risk of) abuse, as well as raising awareness and advocating for effective prevention. 

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.
