Welcome to Hourglass

Hourglass, previously Action on Elder Abuse, is the only charity dedicated to calling time on the harm and abuse of older people. We’re part of the UK-wide organisation: Hourglass Scotland, Hourglass Wales, Hourglass Northern Ireland

In all four nations of the UK, Hourglass works exclusively on challenging the abuse of older people in all its forms. We support those experiencing (or at risk of) harm, as well as raising awareness and advocating effective prevention.
