DIRECTORY OF INFORMATION AND SERVICES

If you are experiencing economic abuse from a current or former partner, or you are still dealing with the consequences of abuse, there are organisations that can support you. This directory provides links to some of these. The services listed below can be filtered by state or territory, or by category. Read about the categories of support available.

Please note: This directory is not exhaustive and is focused on national, state and territory organisations. There are many more organisations operating locally that you may also find useful. Larger organisations can often refer you to these services - or ask your local council. Inclusion in this Directory does not represent an endorsement by CWES.
