Our strategy and impact

We have four strategic priorities 


We work with the media and develop awareness-raising campaigns to increase public understanding of economic abuse. 

Professional responses 

We deliver training, develop tools and resources, provide expert advice and disseminate best practice to professionals who work with victim-survivors. 

Systems change 

We advocate for and support the development of new approaches to economic abuse, working with organisations to review existing systems, policies and procedures

Policy influencing 

We highlight the issue of economic abuse through responding to national policy consultations and working with individuals in local and national government. 

“Money doesn’t make you happy but without money, there’s nowhere to go. That’s why, for me, economic abuse is the greatest form of control.”


In the three years since SEA’s inception, we have become the foremost experts and advocates on economic abuse in the UK.
