Hourglass Webinars


Throughout 2023, Hourglass is hosting free webinars each month in collaboration with our partners, each one focusing on a different area around the abuse of older people.

We’re sharing our specialist knowledge, provoking insightful discussion and asking our panellists to offer their viewpoints on how we can prevent and stop the abuse of older people and work towards safer ageing.



Our Autumn webinar schedule is coming soon. Find out more by following us on Facebook or Twitter or signing up to receive our monthly newsletter
