For Love or Money is a film that sets out to not only name and unpack ‘financial abuse’ as a form of violence against women but aims to open up dialogue about healthy financial relationships. The film supports the prevention of violence against women and promotes women’s financial security. Contact us for a copy of the DVD.
The For Love or Money resource notes are an educational resource about financial abuse. The notes provide information and activities about relationships, money and financial abuse to support the For Love or Money DVD.
Love Control is an educative short film about how to recognise abusive behaviour.
These resource notes were created to accompany the Love Control DVD. They explore how to use the film in a variety of settings (such as in individual support, schools, community groups, mixed gender groups and staff capacity building), how to respond to questions created by the film, how to use the film to its maximum prevention potential, and ways to increase accessibility to prevention messages through using the Plain English version of the notes.
