An intimate interview with Seyema who shares her powerful story of financial abuse for South East Community Links

Financial abuse is a serious form of family violence that can be prevented with the participation of financial institutions.

South East Community Links (SECL) needed video content to support their work: to raise awareness of how financial abuse affects their community in Melbourne's South East, and prevent it from happening through industry intervention. To do this we created an intimate cinematic case study; Seyema's story, and spoke with SECL financial counsellors to share their perspective and advice for the financial services industry.
