Speak up on Essex elder abuse

logo

If you’re worried about whether an elderly person close to you may be suffering from the effects of being abused and you live in Essex, we have some important news for you: We’ve launched a new anonymous reporting phone line in Essex to crack down on elder abuse: 0800 032 7644.

We’ve joined forces with Essex Police and Crime Commissioner Nick Alston and the Safeguarding Adults Boards of Essex, Thurrock and Southend to trial the first ever anonymous reporting line for elder abuse.

The free 24/7 reporting line is specifically dedicated to the people of Essex, and aims to encourage members of the public to report any incident of suspected abuse of elderly people, whether it’s in a care home, hospital or the individual’s own home.

We’ve also launched a dedicated anonymous online form to help us fight elder abuse, and you can donate now to support us in our fight against this crime against older people.
