Key messages

Financial abuse is a form of domestic and family violence and it is not OK. You are not alone, and support is available.

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 for counselling, information and referrals.

You can call 1800RESPECT on 1800 737 732, text 0458 737 732 or visit our website for online chat and video call services: 

  • Available 24/7: Call, text or online chat.
