June 15 is
World Elder Abuse
Awareness Day!



WEAAD is marked each year on June 15. It is an official United Nations International Day acknowledging the significance of elder abuse as a public health and human rights issue.
Since 2006, communities throughout the country and around the world have honoured this day to raise the visibility of elder abuse by organizing events to share information and promote resources and services that can help increase seniors’ safety and well-being. Elder Abuse networks and organizations are planning multiple WEAAD activities across the country to mobilize community action and engage people in discussions on how to promote dignity and respect of older adults.

Let's honour this landmark and continue raising public awareness of elder abuse with events across the country! Share your events with us via the form below so we can add them to our list and event map. 

You can also share updates and photos of your events with us on Twitter and Facebook
