Program Description


"This is a very practical way in which you can challenge elder abuse in your community and do something meaningful to help victims of abuse to recover and survive the effects of their experiences. Volunteers can help as 'buddies' to older victims, help with driving or administration or fundraising, or can visit older people in hospitals or care homes."
