Welcome to Action on Elder Abuse England Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) England works to protect older people from abuse and neglect. We support those experiencing, or at risk of, abuse, as well as raising awareness and advocating effective prevention We’re part of the organisation, Action on Elder Abuse, which works 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. We were established back in 1993 to provide a tailored service to older people, their families/carers and practitioners. Our work is very much about taking an inclusive and partnership approach as much as possible and we have extensive experience of how abuse manifests and affects so many older people. We work to challenge that.

Our Practitioners Network Our Practitioners Network and online forum is an opportunity for you to speak with colleagues not just in England but throughout Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales as well. Good Practice develops from experiences and from the opportunity to share those experiences, to debate and to challenge and to share. The Network and Forum gives you the chance to do that. The Forum is focused exclusively on adult protection/safeguarding, and is supported by people at the front line. This is not about theory; it is about the realities of practice and the real challenges that face us all every day. And it’s about getting it right for all those people experiencing abuse in their lives. Find out more and join the network. Training seminars We recognise that good quality training can reduce the potential for abuse by careworkers and by others, and there is good research to indicate that training, when coupled to appropriate staffing levels, can improve the quality of care provided in institutions and by domiciliary care staff. For this reason, we provide a range of training options, targeted toward residential care staff, domiciliary care staff, and voluntary and independent sector groups that interact or directly work with older people.
