Do Something - Challenge Ageism and Prevent Elder Abuse Workshops
Everyone, no matter what age, young or old, can play a part in challenging ageism and preventing elder abuse.
Age Action Ireland, in association with Cosc (The National Office for the prevention of Domestic, Sexual and Gender Based Violence), are raising awareness of ageism and elder abuse and what you can do to help prevent it.
Intergenerational workshops were held in October 2013 and November 2015 to raise awareness of the issues around elder abuse and ageism with people of all ages. In particular, it was targeted at younger people and people who work with younger people (e.g. youth workers, teachers etc.) so that awareness and prevention would be encouraged from as young an age as possible. The "Do Something - Challenge Ageism & Prevent Elder Abuse" leaflet (link below) sets out the facts around elder abuse and ageism and what you can do to help prevent it.
