Hourglass NI

We are Hourglass, the only UK-wide charity dedicated to calling time on the harm and abuse of older people. At Hourglass and through our helpline, we work for safer ageing and a fairer society. It’s time to wake up and speak out on older abuse.

One in six older people are victims of abuse. That’s over 16% of our mothers, fathers, uncles, aunties, grannies, grandads, friends and neighbours.

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