Money is a powerful tool that can be used to isolate and control. There may be no physical bruises, but the scars of financial abuse are clearly visible in a victim’s bank statement, credit report and eroded financial confidence. According to research by WIRE in 2014, among women who have sought help from domestic violence services, up to 90% have experienced financial abuse.
In this webinar, we will share tips for investigating and resolving cases of financial abuse, gained through our experience running the Financial Abuse Service NSW. You will gain an understanding of the laws and policies that can be used to resolve credit, debt and consumer law problems that stem from financial abuse in intimate partner relationships, as well as practical strategies for negotiating with stakeholders to achieve the best outcomes for victim survivors.
This webinar complements our preceding webinar, Identifying financial abuse in intimate partner relationships and supporting victim survivors, and will be valuable to all community workers and volunteers in services such as financial counselling, domestic violence, women's refuges and community legal centres. Some examples will relate to NSW, but most of the webinar will be applicable Australia-wide. (Note: This webinar does not focus on elder abuse.)
Presenter: Jasmine Opdam, Solicitor, Redfern Legal Centre’s Financial Abuse Service NSW.
