Action on Elder Abuse is well established within the English Adult Safeguarding environment, Young and old women hugginghaving advocated, challenged and lobbied across a wide range of issues since its formation back in 1993. Consequently, we have interacted with Governments, both national (primarily through the Department of Health) and local; with regulators such as the Care Quality Commission and the Nursing and Midwifery Council, and with multiple Third Sector groups, some of which are part of the Adult Safeguarding Alliance. We also work with, challenge, criticise and support the Care Provider sector where and when this is necessary.

An equally important part of our work is to provide support and information to victims of elder abuse and their families, and we do this through our helpline, through our Elder Abuse Recovery Services and through individual case work. Through the helpline we are also able to connect people with more specialist advice, such as solicitors.

A foundation of the charity is also our growing membership of likeminded people - victims, families, friends, members of the public, and practitioners - who want to see elder abuse ended. Action on Elder Abuse is not just a charity, it is a movement for change. So, why not join us.
