Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) is a specialist organisation with a growing number of staff in all four nations of the United Kingdom. We also provide some limited support within Ireland.
Unlike other ‘older people’s organisations’ we focus exclusively on the issue of elder abuse, not as one issue among many, but as a single focus to our work. For this reason we have extensive expertise that is not available from any other charity or agency.
One key way in which we address elder abuse is through our unique confidential freephone helpline, which provides information, advice and support to victims and others who are concerned about or have witnessed abuse, neglect or financial exploitation.
