Economic Justice Project

It is common for perpetrators of economic abuse to take loans and credit out in their victim’s name so that they can never save the money they need to leave. The ‘Economic Justice Project’ is funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and seeks to partner domestic violence services with consumer lawyers to support women in this situation.
