About us

Elder Abuse London Middlesex (EALM) is a non-profit, registered charity comprised of volunteer service providers and members of the community-at-large who are dedicated to working together to address the issue of elder abuse. EALM was formerly known as the Coalition to End Abuse of Older Adults London & Middlesex, established in 2010 with the merger of Project S.E.N.I.O.R. (Stop Elder Neglect in our Region), a London Police Service initiative (2000), and the Committee on Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly (CANE, 1985).

EALM provides a forum for discussion of elder abuse cases and issues, develops and promotes educational material, creates and encourages opportunities for increasing awareness and understanding, takes action to end elder abuse and supports the community in responding.
