Call for Prevent Abuse of Elderly (South WALES)

 Prevent abuse of elderly
South Wales Evening Post
March 31, 2012

AGE Cymru is asking the people of Wales to support a campaign for a law to protect adults from abuse.
The charity's Rule Out Abuse charter calls for a legal duty to be placed on public bodies, including local authorities, to investigate cases of abuse or potential abuse reported to them.
Age Cymru's campaigns co-ordinator Rhea Stevens said: "Everyone should have the right to a life free from abuse, where dignity, respect and safety are part of the natural fabric of society.
"Unfortunately this is not the case and Age Cymru estimates that 39,000 older people in Wales are experiencing abuse in their own homes."
The charity wants 3,000 people to sign up to the charter before World Elder Abuse Day on June 15.
