Upper Hutt City Council is a proud supporter of those young at heart in our local community. We offer a range of resources and events that support positive ageing and wellbeing as well as support local and National awareness campaigns.

Elder abuse awareness

What is Elder abuse?

Elder Abuse and Neglect is a single or repeated act, or lack of appropriate action, occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person.

Elder abuse is a serious issue in New Zealand, with more than 2,000 service referrals of elder abuse every year.

To stand against elder abuse, please support National Elder Abuse Awareness week 15 – 22 June 2017.
