About Us

Many women experience economic abuse within the context of domestic violence. It limits their choices and ability to access safety.

We are the UK charity raising awareness of economic abuse and committed to building the capacity of those who come into contact with victims and survivors of economic abuse to respond.

We do this through sharing expert knowledge and developing useful tools and resources. We work with partner organisations to implement innovative responses. We also identify and share best practice and research.
