Put financial abuse to an end

You can help women make informed financial decisions after separation.

Women’s Information and Referral Exchange (WIRE) is conducting research into women’s experience with financial abuse in intimate relationships, focusing on the barriers and challenges women face in claiming full financial and legal entitlements when they leave a relationship.

During this separation period, many women face short and long-term financial hardship without being aware that financial abuse has been recognised as a form of family violence in the Victorian Family Violence Legislation since 2008.

If you have been in this situation, you can help by attending WIRE’s focus group organised to increase the understanding on the issue and to develop further strategies and actions for women experiencing financial abuse.

For more information, email researcher@wire.org.au or contact Prue Cameron on 9348 9416 (Option 9).
