Economic abuse awareness session for professionals in May
28th April 2023
For the past four years, SATEDA has delivered Economic Abuse sessions to women we support who have experienced domestic abuse. We now want to share our knowledge and experience with the wider community so we will be delivering an online economic abuse awareness sessions for professionals on Monday 15th May at 12.30pm on Teams.
Why call it Economic Abuse?
Financial abuse can be understood as dealing only with cash and bank accounts, but that’s only one part of it.
Economic abuse includes anything to do with money that affects all areas of your day to day life, whether you’re still in the relationship of not, which is why it’s so important that the Domestic Abuse Act recognises and includes post-separation abuse.
Economic abuse extends to housing, work, education, isolation, food, clothing, heating, electricity, gas and transport. It also involves loans, credit ratings, benefits and inheritances, and can manifest in the form of repeated court cases, ongoing and coerced debt, and child maintenance.
