Stop abuse of the el­derly

West Sussex Gazette - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

As a so­ci­ety, we pride our­selves on help­ing those less well off than us.

West Sus­sex is home to many char­i­ties and groups that of­fer sup­port to tens of thou­sands of lo­cal res­i­dents. It is great news that the lat­est char­ity to set up in the county aims to pre­vent the abuse of the el­derly.

Ac­tion on Elder Abuse has now moved into the county and will sup­port some of the es­ti­mated 3,100 se­nior ci­ti­zens whi have been tar­geted by crim­i­nals. It is sad that such an or­gan­i­sa­tion is needed but their work is to be ap­plauded.
