Hello to all Bexhill residents.
I want to raise awareness of a new service for over 60's
Hourglass Safer Ageing:
Hourglass is the only charity in the UK specifically dedicated to calling time on the harm, abuse, and exploitation of older people across the United Kingdom. We offer a national and confidential 24/7 helpline for those experiencing or concerned about, the harm, abuse or exploitation of older people.
If you need help please call: 080 8808 8141
We also offer a range of other localised services which we have extended into Sussex, including our dedicated IDVA team who specialise in domestic abuse cases involving victims 60 and over, as well as a Community Hub, which acts a one-stop-shop for anyone who is concerned about the abuse of older people or needs advice about safer ageing. Demand for our services has increased significantly since the pandemic.
