If you know an older person who is being abused or who may be at risk of abuse, then you might find information on this website useful. Whether you know the individual involved through your role as a professional, carer, relative or friend, we all have an important part to play in safeguarding them from abuse. Any form of abuse is unacceptable, no matter what justification or reason may be given for it, and it is very important that we are aware of this and know that help is available. Don't let abuse go unnoticed, don't ignore, report it!
