PSNI Supports Older But No Safer Campaign

PSNI supports Women’s Aid ABCLN Older But No Safer campaign calling for greater protection for older women affected by domestic abuse. Domestic abuse is largely a hidden issue for older women, under-recorded and under-researched.

PSNI figures for 2019/20 show that older women represent 9.2% of the total female victims of domestic abuse – an increase of 50% from 2004/5.

The Lonely Old Woman

On World Elder Abuse Day Women’s Aid ABCLN is launching ‘The Lonely Old Woman’, a short film produced in association with the Ulster Orchestra reflecting the experiences of older women affected by domestic abuse.

Imagine a whole life dominated by abuse; every high brought low, and every memory tainted. Not even widowhood can bring escape. This film brings one such journey to life through intimate reminiscence. Performer Joan Cosgrove says “It could be the story of your neighbour, a friend, a relative or you.”

With thanks to the generous, long-term support of JTI, Causeway Media Solutions and Ulster Orchestra.
