Signposting and Resources for Economic Abuse

Depending on whether you are living with the person who is harming you, you may choose to take different steps. Some actions you take to increase your security or privacy might alert an abuser, and they might escalate their abusive behaviour. Before looking into what’s happening, we can help you to create a safety plan tailored to your situation:

  • Use a safe device to contact Refuge’s 24hr National Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0808 2000 247. This could be a phone from a trusted friend, family member, neighbour, or a computer in a library, school, or workplace.
  • Use a safe device to contact Refuge’s 24hr National Domestic Abuse Helpline via live chat Monday-Friday 3-10pm via www.nationaldahelpline.org.uk.
