Action on Elder Abuse Northern Ireland works to protect older people from abuse. We support those experiencing (or at risk of) abuse, as well as working towards effective safeguarding, prevention and awareness.
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.
The helpline is available throughout the UK Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, and will not show up on your phone bill.
(We can also operate specialist helplines for care providers, providing whistleblowing advice and support to residents, relatives and staff – contact us if you would like to be part of this service).
The helpline not only provides direct advice and help to people who may be in danger of experiencing abuse but they also provide unique information on the nature, circumstances and dynamics of elder abuse. Ring us on: 080 8808 8141.
