This paper examines the existing research on disability, economic and financial abuse. The paper focuses specifically on abuse occurring in the context of domestic and family violence, and notes the need for further research focused on the experiences of people with disability in this context.
To develop this report, GVRN conducted a comprehensive review of academic and relevant policy literature to identify and analyse existing research on disability, economic and financial abuse. While economic and financial abuse can occur in a variety of contexts for people with disability, this report focuses specifically on DFV. It is therefore not the remit of this report to provide a full account of the literature relating to economic and financial abuse among people with disability falling outside this area of focus. However, we acknowledge economic and financial abuse is a prevalent and devastating form of abuse for people with disability more broadly.
