Action on Elder Abuse does not have the infrastructure of bigger charities, despite the fact that we are the most effective
organisation challenging elder abuse in the UK. We rely heavily on the support of individuals, trusts, foundations and companies to
maintain our work and profile and, like many charities, we have been affected by the recession.
There are a variety of ways that you can support us, and we have identified a range of options below, so please choose the section that suits you best. Sadly, the issue of elder abuse is slipping behind because of the recession, and is not a high profile issue in Government priorities and thinking. So we have to redouble our efforts to make sure that older people have a quality of life and not just an existence.
And, when you support AEA, you can be assured that your money goes exclusively towards addressing the abuse of very vulnerable people. It's what we do. It's all that we do. Thank you for considering supporting us.

Making a regular donation to our work is one of the most valuable ways that you can help us because it ensures a steady
income for our projects and our activities. But, even if you are unable to make regular commitments, a single donation can help us too.
We are often described as an organisation that 'punches above its weight' and this is because we strongly believe in what we do, and
because we spend every penny we get on just one thing - challenging elder abuse.
By making a donation to us you can become part of this process and know that, when we encourage Governments to do more, or hold regulators to account, or challenge poor practices, or support very vulnerable people, you have helped make it possible. Every contribution, however large or small, can help our work and can help keep our voice independent and heard by those who are in a position to protect.
Consider the options below and choose the one that is right for you.
Making a monthly donation is one of the most effective ways to help us provide an ongoing service to older people and vulnerable adults

Making a donation in memory of a friend or relative is a unique way to make their memory last forever. Your donation is a memorial that can
make a real difference and provide great comfort at a time of loss. It can be a positive way to remember the life of a loved one while
supporting the work that we do. And your donation, no matter how small, can make a real contribution to our work and give real help to older
people who are suffering.
If you are organising a funeral, you could invite friends and relatives of your loved one to make a donation to Action on Elder Abuse instead of, or as well as, giving flowers at the funeral.
And please consider leaving us a legacy in your Will – remembering us in this was could help to improve the lives of older people who suffer the most dreadful abuses. A legacy does not have to be a substantial sum. Once you have provided for those you care about, any legacy you can leave to us, whether large or small, will be put to challenging the abuse of older people and improving their lives. By leaving a legacy, you can provide very real support for a hugely worthwhile cause.
