Elder abuse and safer ageing for older people helpline

by Hourglass Scotland Claimed

We operate Scotland’s only dedicated Helpline for those experiencing or concerned to about the harm, abuse or exploitation of older people. We also offer a range of information materials and awareness-raising talks, training, and direct support via a range of volunteer-led projects in local communities. At a national level, we work to raise awareness of the abuse of older people to encourage those affected to speak up and seek support, and engage in campaigning work to advocate effective prevention and support.
