Tackling Ageism

Ageism can lead to abuse. How do you treat the older people in your life?

Office for Ageing Well’s Elder Abuse Prevention Community Awareness Campaign went live on 15 June 2022 – World Elder Abuse Awareness Day.

The campaign focuses on the role ageism plays in taking away older people’s rights such as safety, dignity, and respect. And it highlights that ageism can lead to mistreatment, neglect, and other forms of abuse.
