Financial abuse

Financial abuse is the term used to describe harming someone by taking or defrauding them of their money, goods or property.  It can include pressurising people to hand over benefits, sign over deeds to their home or to make changes to their will.


Financial abuse can happen anywhere and at any time, and affects people from all types of backgrounds.  It can happen in a person’s home, care home, day centre, hospital or in a public place.

Lots of information about financial abuse, as well as easy read information on managing your money, is available on the here.

If you have concerns about abuse of an adult, please give Rochdale Adult Care a call in confidence on 0300 303 8886.
