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.

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. A full listing of our upcoming training events along with booking forms can be found here. Our annual national conference Action on Elder Abuse in England runs a popular national conference aimed at safeguarding professionals, voluntary organisations, public bodies, legal representatives, health professionals, the financial sector and others. The conference generally happens around World Elder Abuse Awareness Day in June but this year is on 13th September. It will take place at ORT House in Camden, London. A full report will appear here shortly after the event.
