Action on Elderly Abuse
We work to protect and prevent the abuse of vulnerable older adults and by doing so we also protect other adults at risk of abuse.
Our unique confidential freephone helpline information
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.
