SEA's Survivor Stories Podcast. Episode 1: Rachel - "My ex-partner put his name on my mortgage. I had no idea"
Survivors of economic abuse often face years of post-separation abuse and housing insecurity connected to their home. The ways in which systems are set up can be used by perpetrators to inflict further suffering to their victims. These systems include mortgages, the provision of legal aid, state benefits, homelessness and housing allocation policies, and the family and civil courts. Many survivors of domestic abuse describe the difficulties involved in breaking links with abusers with whom they share property. In our first ever episode of SEA's Survivor Stories Podcast,  Expert by Experience Group (EEG) member, Rachel, talks to journalist and SEA supporter, Marisa Bate, about her experience of economic abuse and housing.
