Action on Elder Abuse Scotland National Conference – 27 October

Action on Elder Abuse Scotland National Conference (in association with Scottish Care)

Choice, Empowerment, Protection.... Can We Achieve Them All?
A human rights-based approach to supporting, empowering & protecting older people

27th October, Hilton Hotel, William Street, Glasgow

  • Is it possible to support and protect adults at risk of harm, while ensuring real choice and empowerment for the individual?
  • How we do we deliver a human rights-based approach to care, support and protection with increasingly stretched resources?
  • How can we best balance human rights and risks in the delivery of care, support and protection?


Two of Scotland's leading representative organisations invite you to join our debate on these issues, and more, at our engaging conference on 27th October.

The conference will run from 10am until 3.50pm, and includes a combination of presentations, debates and workshops. There will also be a range of exhibitors providing information and materials to showcase good practice and provide information.
