The Covid-19 pandemic has caused significant concern and disruption for us all. But for older people at risk of or experiencing abuse, and those who have been the victims of crime or targeted by criminals, the recent months will have been incredibly difficult. Many older people throughout Wales will have felt frightened, isolated and alone.
That’s why we’ve come together with a simple message for older people in Wales: You are not alone. We’re here for you and we can help and support you.
We’re working together to make sure that older people who may be at risk, and those who care for and care about them, have the information they need about the help and support available. We’re also working to raise awareness amongst the wider public about the role we can all play in helping to protect older people.
This pack provides a range of useful information and resources about keeping older people safe – including the ways we can identify older people who may be at risk, and contact details for key organisations that can provide crucial help and support.
Thank you for your support in protecting and safeguarding older people throughout Wales.
