Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse

On 9 May 2018, Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA) facilitated a roundtable on economic abuse at the Home Office as part of the government’s consultation on Transforming the Response to Domestic Abuse. Eighteen women with lived experience of economic abuse attended, as well as the Economic Crime lead from West Midlands Police and officials from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).

The learning from the roundtable has been written up within a report called ‘Economic abuse is your past, present and future: a report on the practical barriers women face in rebuilding their lives after domestic violence.

The report sits alongside SEA’s response to the government consultation.

We have also submitted a joint response developed by members of the National Working Group on Economic Abuse.
