partnerships and collaborations

Peel Elder Abuse Prevention Network

Established in 2003, the Peel Elder Abuse Prevention Network (PEAPN)  is a collaborative of over 35 community organizations that have come together to stop and prevent the abuse of older adults in our communities. Its objectives are to increase awareness about the issues and dynamics of the abuse of older persons in our communities; to increase community awareness of the supports and services available to victims of elder abuse, and how to access help; and to advocate for services to address identified gaps. United Way of Peel Region is an active member of this collaborative and has also provided funding to develop the strategy.
