About the session

Economic abuse is a legally recognised form of domestic abuse. It often takes place in the context of intimate partner violence. It involves the control of money, finances and things that money can buy, such as clothing, transport, food and a place to live. The abuse can happen between intimate partners and ex-partners, abuse of parents by children, and abuse by parents such as “honour-based violence and abuse by relatives.

The response to economic abuse is a complex one that spans statutory and non-statutory agencies Working together is essential to help with identifying domestic abuse at an early stage and with responding to domestic abuse in a manner that can reduce the risk of escalation. Increased awareness of economic abuse highlights the links with economic and physical safety and encourages a range of multi-agency responses from non-traditional domestic abuse stakeholders including financial services and employers.

This webinar will enable you understand what economic abuse is, how to spot the signs and know the difference that you can make to victim-survivors. We will include Q&A within the session to share experiences and provide an opportunity to direct questions to our economic abuse specialist and lead trainer, Jasbinder Kaur.
