Addressing Financial Abuse

Addressing Financial Abuse: A Domestic and Family Violence Community Resource Guide Tasmania has been adapted for Tasmania by the Sexual Assault Support Service (SASS) in partnership with the Commonwealth Bank.

This booklet is designed for people who work with victims/survivors of family violence to help them identify and provide support for those experiencing financial abuse.

The booklet contains:

  • examples of financial abuse;
  • strategies for recognising people who may be experiencing financial abuse; and
  • direction to resources that may be helpful when assisting those impacted by financial abuse.

The booklet also includes a series of resources that workers can use when supporting those impacted by financial abuse. These resources are designed to provide guidance both for people are currently in a financially abusive relationship, as well as for people who were previously in a financially abuse relationship and are now becoming financially independent.
