The Economic Abuse Reference Group is an informal group of community organisations which influences government and industry responses to the financial impact of domestic and family violence. Our members include domestic and family violence services, community legal services and financial counselling services.
Initially established to consider recommendations of the Royal Commission into Family Violence in Victoria, EARG has input to national issues such as banking and insurance. Our Victorian and New South Wales chapters have input to state issues (for example energy, tenancy and fines). Over 20 organisations contribute to our work.
EARG is funded by the Ecstra Foundation.
