Economic abuse : the hidden cost of family violence [PowerPoint Presentations]

On 3rd December 2013, Women’s Health Victoria hosted a seminar to explore the issue of economic abuse – what it is, how it impacts on women, and some of the measures that can be taken to address it. The presenters discuss projects that are gathering evidence and responding to economic abuse:

• Tanya Corrie and Magdalena McGuire present an overview of economic abuse based on the evidence gathered in Spotlight on Economic Abuse, research project conducted by Good Shepherd Youth & Family Service and Kildonan UnitingCare.

• Karen O'Connor and Rachael Duncombe discuss three projects by Women’s Health Goulburn North East:
Tools for Change, a mentoring project aimed at increasing the financial confidence and capability of women leaving domestic violence;
Keeping your Boat Afloat, a project to build the awareness of financial abuse and the financial capacity of young women, women who have experienced or are experiencing family violence, and professionals working in the family violence sector;
– A no-interest loans scheme which provides interest-free loans for women on low income.
