The new Director of the Adult Safeguarding charity, Action on Elder Abuse, took time out of her busy schedule to tell us about the work of Action on Elder abuse here in NI.

The focus of Veronica's work at present is the development of the helpline 0808 808 8141

The charity is involved in key areas of work:

raising awareness of the wide range of harm and abuse experienced by older people which includes physical, sexual, psychological, financial and neglect;

providing advice and support to older people experiencing abuse, and those who care for or are concerned about older people;

promoting research and projects relating to elder abuse and campaigning for the best support and prevention framework
