In this week’s episode, we hear from our friend & colleague, Amy Brooker. Amy joins us to explore an important and emotive issue impacting many people's lives in the UK: domestic abuse. During our discussion, we take a deep dive into economic and financial abuse and the adverse consequences of the current Universal Credit system on those being abused. We interview Amy, who penned her dissertation on this subject, as the Domestic Abuse Bill makes its way through the House of Lords. We talk through: definitions, abuse in the LGBTQ+ community, why legislation is important, what’s missing and the impacts COVID-19 have had on domestic abuse.
