A major activity for AEA is hosting conferences on issues related to elder abuse and the adult protection/safeguarding agenda. Throughout each year, we organise conferences on specific themes (e.g. medication control and abuse) or about specific services (e.g. sheltered housing), all intended to highlight specific issues or increase the knowledge and awareness of practitioners.
We also regularly attend and speak at conferences organised by other organisations, either focusing on our knowledge and experiences of elder abuse in particular, or on our wider knowledge of the adult safeguarding field. Email the relevant Director if you wish to book one of our speakers:
Wales: Rachael Nicholson-Wright Scotland: Lesley Carcary
Northern Ireland: Veronica Gray
'Ageing in Scotland: Justice, Injustice & Protection'
This year's conference takes place on 4th September in Glasgow. Our keynote speaker is Humza Yousaf, Cabinet Secretary for Justice, and we also have an engaging range of other contributors.
