Responding to abuse and neglect of people with disability

This training looks at how to recognise and to respond to abuse and neglect of people with disability. Statistics show that the prevalence of abuse and neglect happening to people with disability is much higher than people without disability.

Most abuse and neglect that occurs to people with a disability is perpetrated by someone they know and in a setting that they live or receive care in as a result of having a disability.

This one day course is interactive, and involves group discussions as well as looking at the hard facts, all while being in a safe  environment which is often viewed as a taboo topic. This course can be condensed into a half day session if needed.

PWDA also offers training as part of our work providing disability support for the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in preventing violence and abuse towards people with disability, including sexual assault.
