1800RESPECT's Financial Abuse Support Toolkit is available to anyone impacted by financial abuse.
Raise awareness of financial abuse and the support available by sharing messaging, social media tiles, videos and links to the toolkit with your networks.
The 1800RESPECT Financial Abuse Support Toolkit is available to anyone who is impacted by financial abuse, including those in a support role. The toolkit explains what financial abuse can look like, what it can feel like and how to reach out for support.
The 1800RESPECT Financial Abuse Support Toolkit has been developed with advocates and experts to provide the best information and advice possible. People impacted by financial abuse can access the information at any time, and can work through the toolkit with a support person. A support person may be a friend, family member, financial counsellor or social worker.
Anyone can contact our qualified counsellors at 1800RESPECT 24 hours a day, seven days a week for counselling, information and referrals.
For more information, messaging and media contacts, please view the Media Release.

Collection 1: "Feelings of helplessness are really common when you're experiencing financial abuse."
Collection 2: "I felt I couldn't reach out because people wouldn't understand."
Collection 3: "It's not your fault, and there is no shame in reaching out."
Collection 4: "Physically, mentally, emotionally, verbally abused. All of those abuses are the cage, and financial abuse is the padlock."
Collection 5: Family and friends can also reach out to 1800RESPECT for advice on how to support someone.
A series of three videos have been made as part of the toolkit to share understanding of what financial abuse can look like, what it can feel like, and what you can do to reach out for support.
The three key videos and a number of shorter videos for social media promotion are available on the 1800RESPECT YouTube channel in the Financial Abuse Support Toolkit playlist. We invite you to share these videos on your social media channels.
