Financial Abuse: Uncovering this silent form of domestic violence

Redfern Legal Centre Young Professionals Committee invites you to attend a panel discussion on financial abuse in domestic violence.

Financial abuse is a lesser known form of domestic violence. However, for those who experience it, its impact can often be just as traumatising as physical violence.

Our panel will explore both the social and psychological impact of financial abuse, as well as the significant barrier it can create for those trying to leave an abusive relationship.

The panel will feature:

  • The personal story of Rachael Natoli, a domestic abuse survivor who has overcome financial abuse and is now the CEO of her own foundation that tackles this very issue.
  • Interstate academic Jozica Kutin, who is currently completing a PhD investigating financial abuse in young adult relationships at RMIT University.
  • Vanessa Emery who is a financial counsellor with extensive experience helping clients who have been victims of financial abuse. Vanessa is also on the Board of Directors of the Financial Counsellors Association of NSW.
  • Laura Bianchi, RLC's credit, debt and consumer solicitor who is responsible for establishing and heading up our new state-wide financial abuse service.
