Welcome to the website of the National Centre for the Protection of Older People (NCPOP). The centre is funded by the Health Service Executive to undertake a programme of research into elder abuse in Ireland. Through our collaborative interdisciplinary team we aim to develop a knowledge base of Irish and international research to contribute to the development of policy, practice, and education. The NCPOP website is a resource for all those working with or having contact with older people in areas such as health and social care, legal and financial services, as well as for older people themselves.
