Stop Elder Abuse - AEA website page

"Action on Elder Abuse (AEA) works to protect, and prevent the abuse of, vulnerable older adults. We were the first charity to address these problems and are the only charity in the UK and in Ireland working exclusively on the issue today".

In 1993 they established the definative definition of elder abuse. This has been subsequently adopted by the World Health Organisation, is promoted by the International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, and has been variously adopted by countries throughout the World. Their work is fundamental to challenging elder abuse in the UK and they constantly need financial support to continue activities. Although they are as effective as many of the bigger charities, they receive only a fraction of their income. Visit their website and help them continue to make a difference.

Many elder abuse perpetrators are family members dependent on the victim.
