Organisation details

Hourglass (formerly Action on Elder Abuse)

Organisation type: Other

Hourglass is a specialist organisation with a growing number of staff in all four nations of the United Kingdom. We also provide some limited support within Ireland. 

Unlike other ‘older people’s organisations’ we focus exclusively on the issue of elder abuse, not as one issue among many, but as a single focus to our work. For this reason we have extensive expertise that is not available from any other charity or agency.

The Hourglass helpline provides a free-phone helpline providing emotional support, information and guidance to anyone concerned about abusive practices which affect older people.
