National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life
Seventy-seven million baby boomers are aging and people 85 and older, the fastest growing segment of the population, are disproportionately women. These demographic trends have significant implications for victimization, safety, suffering, health, and well-being of tens of millions of older Americans.
Through advocacy and education, the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) works everyday to improve victim safety, increase abuser accountability, expand coordinated community response, and ultimately, put an end to abuse in later life.
As a private, non-profit organization, NCALL relies on federal funding and the generosity of others to carry out our work. To pledge your support to NCALL, please visit the Donation page today.
Please Join Us In Commemorating World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15
World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) is recognized annually on or around the 15th of June. Since its inception in 2006, communities throughout the country and around the world have used this day to raise the visibility of elder abuse by sharing information about abuse, neglect, and exploitation in later life and promoting the resources and services that work to increase victim safety and improve offender accountability.
You can make a difference. Domestic violence and sexual assault advocates are in a unique position to provide support, safety planning, legal advocacy, and other services to older victims. Professionals working in the criminal justice have an opportunity to hold offenders accountable. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is an excellent opportunity to raise the visibility of older victims in your community. Additional information about World Elder Abuse Awareness Day events and innovative resources can be found on our WEAAD webpage.
