Concerned about harm or abuse of an older person?
Help is just a phone call away.
If you’re experiencing harm or abuse, or you know of an older person who is, call our free and confidential helpline.
Elder Abuse Response Helpline:
FREEPHONE 080 8808 8141
(Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm)
Action on Elder Abuse Scotland works to protect older people from harm and abuse. We support those experiencing or (at risk of) harm and abuse, as well as raising awareness and advocating effective prevention. We’re part of the UK-wide organisation, Action on Elder Abuse, who were the first charity to address elder abuse and the only charity in the UK working exclusively on this issue today.
Our helpline is operated by a team of dedicated and experienced staff and volunteers across the UK, and we’ve been working hard over the last year in Scotland to recruit a new team of Scottish based volunteers to offer a local voice and specialist knowledge of the unique Scottish support system.
Call us today for free and impartial advice and support on:
- financial harm or exploitation
- physical harm or abuse
- emotional or psychological abuse
- sexual harm or abuse
Our helpline is entirely confidential, free to call from a landline or mobile, and won’t appear on your phone bill.
Our experienced helpline operators can help you make the best choices to keep yourself safe, and put you in touch with appropriate local agencies.
If you don’t know what to do or can’t talk to anyone, don’t suffer in silence. Help is just a phone call away.
