Financial abuse support

Understanding financial abuse

Financial abuse occurs when one person manipulates another to control their finances and property without their consent.

There are many types of financial abuse and it can happen to anyone, no matter how old, or how much money they have.

If you feel you're in a financially abusive situation, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of our staff.
