Concerned about harm or abuse of an older person? Help is just a phone call away.
Action on Elder Abuse Scotland has recently trained a new team of Scottish Helpline volunteers to allow them to expand their reach in Scotland, so they are keen to promote the helpline as widely as possible across Scotland. The Helpline offers a confidential, informal service for anyone seeking advice or support, or just looking for someone to talk to. They can also help callers decide whether to refer to Adult Protection or if they can access support from elsewhere (including making referrals on their behalf if they request this).
