Roundtable on Economic Abuse Report
A roundtable was held with Surviving Economic Abuse’s ‘Experts by Experience’ Group at the Home Office in 2018. In addition to Home Office officials, attendees included the Economic Crime lead from West Midlands Police and officials from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the Ministry of Justice (MoJ).
The aims of the roundtable were to:
• Inform Government officials of what economic abuse is share lived experiences of women who have or are currently experiencing it.
• Provide recommendations that will shape the development of the new Domestic Abuse Bill (England and Wales) so that economic abuse is addressed effectively.
The learning has been written up within this report which sits alongside SEA’s written response to the consultation.
