Hidden Harms Animation – recognising domestic abuse affecting older people. Research and evidence show that domestic abuse affecting older people is often not recognised and under reported. Essex, Thurrock and Southend Adult Safeguarding Boards, Compass and SETDAB have worked in partnership with Dewis Choice to produce the animation ‘Hidden Harms’, which explores different types of abuse, the unique challenges that older adults face when encountering domestic abuse and encourages individuals to seek help. View the Hidden Harms animation here to help start a conversation with older adults at risk of domestic abuse. Share with your staff, volunteers and wider networks.
