Hourglass Cymru is the only national charity dedicated to calling time on the harm and abuse of older people.

We support those experiencing (or at risk of) harm, as well as raising awareness and advocating effective prevention.

We’re part of the UK-wide organisation Hourglass, previously Action on Elder Abuse – the only charity in the UK working exclusively on challenging the abuse of older people in all its forms.

The Hourglass mission is simple: end the harm, abuse and exploitation of older people in the UK. 

We have nearly 30 years’ experience as Action on Elder Abuse and over that time our work has touched tens of thousands of people, it’s shaped government policy and amplified the issue in national press. That’s why Hourglass is so vital. 

As the UK’s only charity focused on the abuse and neglect of older people, we staff a
free-to-call helpline. It’s an absolute lifeline for older men, women and their families suffering from the five forms of abuse: physical, psychological, financial, sexual or neglect. 

Helpline for older people who are being ill-treated, abused or are in fear of any form of abuse.

Open 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.

Answerphone service if busy or out of hours.
