Elder abuse must stop!

To mark World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, 15 June, the Age Demands Action movement once again came together to lead the fight for older people's rights.

Older campaigners across the world took action to speak out about the elder abuse they face and make this issue, which often goes unreported, more visible. 

Find out more about our global Age Demands Action on Rights campaign to fight elder abuse.
