Preview

This paper reports findings from a project which examined how inter‐agency procedures on older age abuse in domestic settings were used in one local authority. Observations about the use of procedures and about practice with older people who had been abused are placed in the context of national policy developments and are reviewed alongside the available literature. The research questions the extent to which guidance is effective in providing direction for practitioners who encounter older age abuse, and how well guidance and practice combine to protect victims.
