Victim survivors of financial abuse often experience impacts on their credit report, which can impact their lives, for years after they have left the relationship behind. Defaults, enquiries that a victim survivor did not make and loans that were not for their benefit can all cause significant issues with obtaining credit in the future, and can even cause issues with obtaining a mobile phone plan or a utilities account.
This webinar will cover the obligations and best practice for lenders and tips and tricks for advocacy in correcting errors in credit reporting, to help victim survivors regain independence.
Who is this webinar for: This webinar will be valuable to all community workers and volunteers in services such as financial counselling, domestic violence, women's refuges and community legal centres Australia-wide. (Note: This webinar does not focus on elder abuse.)
Presenter: Amelia Klein, Solicitor, Financial Abuse Service NSW at Redfern Legal Centre
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT. A 14-year-old Indigenous boy who was hospitalised with head injuries after an encounter with NSW Police officers in September is fighting to have an upcoming hearing examining the officers’ conduct open to the public.
The NSW Government’s ‘law and order’ response to the pandemic created significant fines debt and damaged community-police relations in some of the most disadvantaged parts of the state, according to a new UNSW Law School report.
