Training and seminarsgroup training

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.

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.
