  • Hourglass Scotland launches the first-ever 24/7 elder abuse helpline

    Created: 16/03/2022

    Hourglass Scotland has launched the UK’s first 24/7 helpline as part of a major push to bring the “hidden epidemic” of abuse experienced by older people out into the open and get victims the support they need. As many as 2.7 million people are thought to be affected by the abuse of older people in the UK, with upwards of 225,000 victims in Scotland, yet new data from the charity’s helpline shows only a fraction of those victims (0.2%) are accessing the helpline to get specialist support from Hourglass.
