Domestic abuse: What can we all do to support older people at risk?

During the 16 Days of action last year Safer Leeds and Leeds Safeguarding Adults Board hosted an OBA (Outcomes Based Accountability) event on the 3 December 2018 focussing on older people and domestic abuse.

The aim of this event was for strategic partners and third sector organisations to work together to improve responses and outcomes for older victims of domestic violence and abuse.

Reference Guide

The OBA was very well attended and there was lots of positive discussions and suggestions about how we can reach out and support older victims of domestic abuse.  These have all been collated and a reference guide of points to consider when supporting older victims of abuse has been produced which you can download here.

Please share this document with colleagues within your organisation and encourage them to consider these points within their service areas.
