Banking Staff Being Trained To Spot Signs Of Financial Abuse
Banking staff nationwide are being trained in how to spot signs of financial abuse.
It follows research by the Banking and Payments Federation which found 22 per cent of women aged 18 to 34 do not have control over their financial affairs.
Women’s Aid will provide in-depth awareness training to frontline banking staff so they will be able to recognise key indicators of financial abuse.
Chief executive Sarah Benson says financial abuse is a lot more common than people realise.
