Survey for Service Providers, Policy Makers and Representative Organisations
Women with Disabilities and Violence in Australia
Women with disabilities have made it clear that it is time for action and that it is only through systemic change that their fundamental human right to freedom from violence will be realised.
Stop the Violence Project
The Stop the Violence Project (STVP) is in direct response to this call for real and sustainable systemic change . The STVP is a national policy reform project aimed at improving services for women and girls with disabilities experiencing or at risk of violence. A long-term objective for the project is to improve the quality of life of women and girls with disabilities in Australia, and to promote and protect their rights to freedom from violence, exploitation and abuse.
The project has been funded by the Safety Taskforce of the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) under its First Action Plan of the National Plan to Reduce Violence against Women and their Children (National Plan).
About this Survey
The information gathered will be used to build an evidence base for future reform of the service system to better respond to the needs of women and girls with disabilities.
