Age Action is organising a series of workshops for the public in the coming weeks to help raise awareness about elder abuse.
The workshops will take place between March 28 and April 8 at venues in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Athy, Co. Kildare. They aim to raise awareness about what elder abuse is, the warning signs of abuse, the supports available if a person is being abused, and how to access them.
The workshops, which are funded by the HSE, will take place as follows:
Dublin: Wynn’s Hotel, Lower Abbey Street, Dublin 1, Monday, March 28 (9.45am to 12 noon);
Athy: Carlton Abbey Hotel, Athy, Friday, April 1 (1.45pm to 4pm);
