This donation will go to our ‘Therapy and Training Fund’.
Financial abuse is a core element of coercive control, which became a criminal offence in the UK in 2015. Support with retaining / gaining employment can be a significant priority with many of our clients. Being a victim of abuse creates huge emotional stress, and dealing with that stress draws deeply both on emotional reserves and resilience, and practically, on time management. The normal difficulties of balancing work and life are greatly magnified and can impact on performance through lateness, absence, changes in personality / behaviour, and all the indicators of anxiety and depression. This gift enables a client to recieve sensitive one to one help and support, working with their employer and other agencies where needed to build an appropriate plan for strengthening workplace confidence, skills and behaviours.
