Action on Elder Abuse Cymru would like to invite you to our annual conference which is taking place on Tuesday 5th March 2019 in St. Asaph. Following two sell-out conferences in Cardiff we are delighted to be hosting our first in North Wales.
This year we will be examining whether Wales is doing enough to protect and support older victims of crimes and we have an incredible line-up including:
- Dr. Margaret Flynn, Chair, National Independent Safeguarding Board
- Alan Clark, Professor of Criminology, Aberystwyth University, Dewis Choice Project
- Paul Greenwood, recently retired Deputy District Attorney, San Diego, California, former Crown Prosecution Service solicitor
- Steve Bartley, Safeguarding Lead, Older People’s Commissioner for Wales.
- Gerallt Evans, Deputy Chief Crown Prosecutor, Crown Prosecution Service, Cymru – Wales Area
- North Wales Deputy Police & Crime Commissioner Ann Griffith
- Deputy Chief Constable Richard Lewis, National Police Chiefs’ Council Lead on Age Related Matters.
There will also be an interactive panel discussion where delegates will get an opportunity to pose their questions.
The conference will be of interest to anybody who works with older people who have experienced some form of abuse, whether at home at the hands of a family member or professional, in a care setting or if targeted by criminals because of their perceived vulnerability. Speakers will be examining how to encourage reporting crimes to the police, the response of the police, how decisions about prosecutions are made, the interface between the criminal justice system and safeguarding and how those working with older people in local authorities or in the third sector support older victims.
