Resource Compendium










Resource Compendium

This Resource Compendium is designed primarily for service providers and policy makers in a variety of sectors. It is comprised of key, selected resources that were agreed by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.  These resources can assist in designing and delivering services and in preparing policy to address issues of violence against women and girls with disabilities.

The research and findings of Stop the Violence Project can be found in the Background Paper [pdf] [doc], the Discussion Paper [pdf] [doc], and the Report of Outcomes and Proceedings of the National Symposium [pdf] [doc].


Wherever possible, this Resource Compendium contains accessible documents. However, some documents could not be obtained in accessible formats.
