Do you believe that abusing older people is wrong?

If so then join our latest initiative to raise awareness about elder abuse.

In 2017, “1 in 6 older persons were subjected to abuse. That means nearly 141 million people globally.”United Nations

With lockdowns and reduced care, violence against older persons is on the rise. Most abuse is not reported.

Our new Crime Prevention Panel annual initiative is supported by:
· United in Kind, Tendring
· Home Instead
· Speak Up Now UK.

Follow these three simple steps to make your pledge to prevent elder abuse:

1. Make your promise
I Promise to prevent and stop elder abuse wherever I can;
I Promise to never knowingly break the trust of an older person;
I Promise to learn as much as possible about elder abuse;
I Promise to educate work colleagues, friends and family about elder abuse.
