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.

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.
