7. Assisting clients with disabilities in domestic violence matters

July 7, 2019,

Clients with disabilities who experience domestic violence are especially vulnerable, and need specialised assistance.

Our presenter for this webinar is Leona Berrie, Project Manager from WWILD – Sexual Violence Prevention Association Inc. WWILD provides free counselling and support groups for people with intellectual disabilities who are survivors of crime or exploitation.

In this webinar Leona covers:

  • Intersections between disability and gendered violence/domestic violence;

  • Common communication issues; and

  • Strategies to mitigate communication issues and improve accessibility (it’s not just about ramps and lifts!).

This webinar is part of our Domestic Violence Capacity Building for Community Legal Centres program, recorded 27 February 2019.
