Welcome to Action on Elder Abuse Scotland

Action on Elder Abuse in Scotland Challenging harm & abuse of older people

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 organisation, Action on Elder Abuse, who work 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.     

Call our Scottish Helpline for confidential advice & support 080 8808 8141

Highlight: Free event for older people (Queensferry Hotel) - What's important to older people?
