Northern Integrated Family Violence Services and Women with Disabilities Victoria (WDV) invite workers to a forum to strengthen responses to women with disabilities who experience family violence.

Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on their practice and identify the social contexts that create barriers to safety for women with disabilities who experience family violence.

Keynote Speaker, Leah van Poppel (CEO WDV) will discuss the best ways to partner with women to uphold their right to safety and respect.

Women with disabilities who are advocates and a panel of workers will share their ideas and discuss how to understand, confidently respond to and support women.
