Support My Economic Safety


The Centre for Women’s Economic Safety invites you to imagine a world where women are free of economic abuse: A world where economic safety is an accepted human right, where every adult has their own financial identity, and where women’s and men’s contributions to society are equally valued.


Our Mission

The Centre for Women’s Economic Safety (CWES) exists to raise awareness and understanding of domestic economic abuse and improve responses to it.

Our Objectives

  1. To support women experiencing economic abuse by connecting them with the information and resources they need;
  2. Towards prevention and early intervention of economic abuse by raising awareness and understanding of the issue; and
  3. In advocacy for social, service and system change to better support women’s economic safety and opportunity.

Our Approach

Building on the approach developed by Domestic Violence Service Management’s initiative, Insight Exchange, the Centre for Women’s Economic Safety is guided by the expertise of women with lived experiences of economic abuse and disadvantage to inform its advocacy.


If you are experiencing economic abuse, or you are supporting someone who is, please explore the Directory on our Financial Safety website, for services that can support.
