Supporting World Elder Abuse Awareness Day

14 June 2017

World Elder Abuse Awareness Day logoGeorge Hythe House and Holmfield Day Care Centre are supporting the 2017 UN World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on Thursday 15 June, with a coffee morning to help raise the profile of this important issue.

The day was officially designated by the United Nations in 2011. It recognises that with a growing population of older people globally, we all have a responsibility to be aware of the possibility of elder abuse, and to have the confidence to speak out if we suspect it may be happening.

We’ll also be raising funds for Action on Elder Abuse, the first UK charity to address these problems, and the only one working exclusively on the issue today.

Please pop in and join us on Thursday morning to lend your support for this cause.
