Welcome to Action on Elder Abuse Scotland 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 UK-wide organisation, Action on Elder Abuse - the only charity in the UK working on this issue exclusively today.

Not only are you protecting your inheritance and your loved ones, but the full amount you pay will be donated directly to Action on Elder Abuse. The suggested donation amount for a professional will is £200 (although you can donate less if you wish), and the full amount will go towards supporting the work of Action on Elder Abuse. Many people don't think they need a will, but if you die without putting one in place, the courts will decide what will happen to your estate - this may not be distributed in the way you would have wanted it to. Unfortunately we also hear of cases of older people being coerced into handing over money, property or possessions by unscrupulous family and friends. Setting up a will can therefore be an important safeguard against financial abuse and exploitation. Of course, we also realise that some older people can be coerced into changing their will, or setting up a will in a way which does not reflect their wishes. If you are concerned about this, we would strongly advise you contact our Freephone Scottish Helpline for advice and support. You can also get comprehensive information about wills in Scotland from the Citizens Advice website: click here.
