Who we are: Celebrity support

Celebrities who have helped us


There are many people in public life who have supported the work that we do, and these include our patrons, politicians and people in the media. They are a diverse group of people but they share a common goal, which is a desire to challenge elder and adult abuse.

When people in public life support our goals it helps to bring the abuse of older people into the light, so that it is no longer an issue hidden behind closed doors. We are therefore grateful for whatever support people feel able to give, and it all helps.

Together we can make a difference.
