Motion text

That this House, noting the innumerable lives scarred by physical, sexual, psychological and emotional abuse, welcomes the Welsh Trust for Prevention of Abuse's project Elders and Betters, a film targeting the abuse of the elderly both in their own homes and care homes in Wales, highlighting and identifying such abuse, teaching the elderly about their right to speak out without fear in the knowledge that they will be listened to and helped; and further notes that the project, funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and match funded by UK Steel Enterprises, is to be made in a care home in Wales with residents, relatives and carers taking part, forming a trilogy with the Trust's acclaimed bilingual videos It's My Life and Bully Off, which targeted child abuse and bullying.
