The recognition that economic control, exploitation and sabotage can be a part of domestic abuse is a key aspect of the Government's domestic abuse Bill.

The National Skills Academy for Financial Services (NSAFS) will be officially helping legislators to tackle this problem.

The Government's proposed legislation proposes a statutory definition of domestic abuse and introducing a wide range of additional measures covering protection and support for victims, support for children, improving the law enforcement response, and tackling economic abuse.

Proposed measures include providing £200,000 funding to NSAFS to develop and deliver financial capability training for frontline workers to support individuals who are experiencing economic abuse

The training, which will be aimed primarily at charities and not-for-profit organisations, is being delivered in partnership with housing association Gentoo and economic abuse charity Surviving Economic Abuse.
