Elder abuse and neglect prevention services support older people who have been abused or neglected to achieve a safer living environment. In some situations, lack of authoritative power prevents achievement of this goal. This research surveys EANPS Coordinators, identifying situations where they have previously been unable to achieve safety for a client and explores whether increased statutory powers would improve this. Recommendations focus on policy, practice and research
