Explore insights from people with lived experience

Insight Exchange hosts a series of narratives based on interviews with people with lived experience of domestic and family violence focused on the financial abuse they experienced. The initiative to conduct the interviews was from an informal pro-bono collaboration by Rosie’s Place, WASH House, and the Mt Druitt Family Violence Team. The narratives were provided by the individuals for the benefit of others. The interviews were conducted by Rosie’s Place and the narratives were assembled by the Insight Exchange team.

Each narrative is hosted on Insight Exchange. We have collated the 18 examples of lived experiences insights of financial abuse into a collection. 18 women shared their experiences to inform social, service and systemic responses to domestic and family violence.
