Violence within families or whanau seriously impacts the health and well being of all involved. Experiencing violence can be disabling, while the use of violence is common against disabled people.
In these workshops we bring together disability, sexual and domestic violence and health care sectors to develop a shared community understanding and actions to improve care for those impacted by violence.
To build upon understanding throughout the workshops we encourage organisations to register one person who is committed to attending both workshops.
Workshop One: Exploring issues of violence against disabled people/the disabling effects of violence (September 4)
Workshop Two: Identifying key issues and developing joint community actions (September 18)
Please note these events are aimed at professionals.
