Your donation can help us to save lives and stop economic abuse forever

“The work your charity is doing saved mine and my children’s life.” Victim-survivor

One in five women in the UK has experienced economic abuse by a current or former partner in the past 12 months. The effects can last a lifetime, and without support some women can never break free of the abuser’s control.  

They can be left with large amounts of debt, or without access to money or a home. Many are trapped with abusive partners and experience other forms of abuse. Some feel they have no choice but to take their own lives. 

Why give to Surviving Economic Abuse?

Surviving Economic Abuse (SEA) is the only UK charity dedicated to raising awareness of economic abuse and transforming responses to it.  

With your support, we can create change for victim-survivors that can be life-changing and sometimes life-saving.  

could pay for us to reach more than 1,000 people on social media with information to help them identify economic abuse early
could pay for our Survivors’ Forum for a day, so women can access a safe and supportive place to connect with other survivors
could pay for a bank clerk, police officer or advice worker to receive expert training they can use to support thousands of victim-survivors

We pioneer new approaches to supporting survivors such as the Financial Support Line, run by our frontline partner Money Advice Plus, which offers regulated financial advice specifically for victim-survivors of domestic abuse.   

We work with financial services, domestic abuse services and other frontline organisations to increase understanding of economic abuse so that every victim-survivor receives the right response the first time they seek help.   

We influence national laws and policies to better reflect the needs of victim-survivors, and work with industry to improve practice.
