World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

15th June 2019 is World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) #WorldElderAbuseAwarenessDay

Is your organisation doing something to mark the day and raise awareness?

You could ask your colleagues to sign up to the Action on Elder Abuse Promise and send us a photo for social media (see below) or…

  • Dress up in purple (designated colour)
  • Raise funds for Action on Elder Abuse (the only specialist charity working with ‘elder abuse’)
  • Talk to friends and adults who use your service about this issue
  • Do a sponsored event (we have done a parachute jump and white water rafting in previous years….yes really!)

Shropshire Partners in Care wants to know what you are doing to mark WEAAD – get in touch!  @SPICnews on Twitter and you can include the hashtags #WorldElderAbuseAwarenessDay and  #WEAAD or tag us on Facebook – Shropshire Partners in Care @ShropshirePartnersinCare

Action on Elder Abuse Promise

The PROMISE I make today to older people

And to the future generations who follow them

Today, tomorrow and forever

For you. And for me.

I promise

to prevent and stop elder abuse wherever I can

 I promise

to never knowingly break the trust of an older person

 I promise

to learn as much as possible about elder abuse

 I promise to educate work colleagues, friends and family about elder abuse
