Whatever it takes: Access for women with disabilities to domestic and family violence services
This poster is designed to assist service providers to consider how to create accessible family violence services for women with disability, and links them to further evidence and resources.
The poster was developed as part of ANROWS-funded research entitled “Whatever it takes”: Access for women with disabilities to domestic and family violence services: Final report (Dyson et al., 2017). This research aimed to help response services to respond effectively to the needs of women with disability. It incorporates the experiences of women with disability who have experienced violence and abuse and have used response services.
This interactive poster aims to support services, including family violence services, to engage with the evidence and centre the experiences of women with disability in their service responses.
This poster explains what makes a service a good fit for women with disability by setting out:
- accessible service inclusions
- how to involve women with disability in your service
- the importance of collaborative service provision
- how to collect and use data in collaboration with women with disability.
