New guide: Supporting Women’s Financial Safety

A new resource is now available for financial service organisations: 'Supporting Women’s Financial Safety: A Guide to Prevention and Action on Financial Abuse within the Financial Service Sector'.

The guide has been produced thanks to research conducted by Swinburne University of Technology, RMIT University, South East Community Links (SECL) and Good Shepherd ANZ. It also includes input from financial counsellors. Development of the guide was funded by the Office for Women within The Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. 

The guide includes simple checklists to help recognise, understand, prevent and address financial abuse. There is a focus on prevention of financial abuse, as well as a response for when abuse occurs.

The guide will be helpful for:

  • Utility companies
  • Banks
  • Insurance providers and
  • Loan providers

If you, or someone you know is experiencing elder abuse, help is available through our confidential helpline on 1300 368 821.
