ELDER ABUSE AWARENESS
Each year Age Concern receives 2000 referrals of elder abuse. This can include financial, psychological and physical abuse. To raise awareness Age Concern has organised Elder Abuse Awareness Week, which runs until June 22, and followed World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15. The Napier City Council supported the event by lighting up Clive Square purple for a week. The Hastings District Council is lighting up the clock tower and fountain in the city centre this month.
