The National Centre for the Protection of Older People (NCPOP) was set up in October 2008 and was officially launched just over one year later by the Minister for Health and Children, Mary Harney TD in November 2009. The Centre, which is funded by the Health Service Executive, is focusing on a programme of research examining elder abuse in Ireland which will result in original research outputs and contribute to the development of policy and practice in relation to elder abuse.

In arriving at directions for best practice the Centre is drawing on international research and developments in the field of elder abuse and is developing international collaborations with leading researchers in the field. The Centre is a primary resource for those working with, or having contact with, older people in areas of health and social care, law services and financial services.


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
