One of the key priorities of the Commonwealth Bank Next Chapter program is to work in partnership with experts to increase community and industry understanding of financial abuse. With these partners, they have developed a number of resources you can use to build your understanding of financial abuse and improve your financial independence.

This research 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.
