Women with disabilities

The nature and dynamics of violence and abuse towards women with disabilities differ from the general population and this group experiences additional barriers  when accessing support services.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics’ Personal Safety Survey 2016 (ABS, 2017), women with a disability or long-term health condition are more likely to have experienced violence than those without.

Below is a collection of resources, papers, reports and research projects that explore the nature of violence for women with disabilities, along with barriers, and support strategies.
