Case examples


These case examples have been developed based on real cases of abuse reported by professionals from the social care, health and banking sectors.

The cases are labelled so that you can choose by the nature of financial abuse that occurred, for instance activities of rogue traders or a case involving misuse of lasting power of attorney authority.

You can also select your case by the type of professional who was involved in the case example. There are cases reported by a range of job roles across the
