16 Days of Action highlighting domestic abuse

Friday 25th November 2022

Wiltshire Council has joined forces with organisations in Wiltshire and Swindon to highlight what financial abuse can look like in a relationship - and how to get help.

Financial abuse is a legally recognised form of domestic abuse and often occurs in the context of intimate partner violence. It involves the control of a partner or ex-partner's money, finances and things that money can buy, such as clothing, transport, food and a place to live. Not having access to your own money, feeling trapped in an abusive relationship and worrying how you'll survive financially.
