Surviving Economic Abuse is running a series of free webinars over the next few months, increasing understanding and awareness of economic abuse across six key issues. These include privately owned housing, banking, coerced debt, children, COVID-19 and the police.
The coronavirus outbreak and the measures introduced to stem its spread and protect the economy have negatively impacted all of us, including creating increased risk for victim-survivors of economic abuse. This webinar will explore Surviving Economic Abuse's work to discover the impact of the outbreak on victim-survivors of economic abuse. It will focus on the findings of research conducted with victim-survivors and the front-line professionals that support them, and the changes SEA are calling for to best support victim-survivors during and following the outbreak. Attendees will hear from SEA's Head of Policy and Influencing, Holly Cameron, and Research Officer, Dr Kathryn Royal. There will be time to ask questions and share reflections.
Each session will provide an overview of the key theme and how it sits within the context of economic abuse
