For friends and family

One in five UK adults has experienced economic abuse by a current or former partner. While over a third didn’t tell anyone at the time, those who did were most likely to confide in family and friends. 

We want everyone to understand what economic abuse is, how to recognise it in the context of domestic violence, and what they can do to support victim-survivors.
