Disabled people and domestic abuse

April 6, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm

free
Disabled people and domestic abuse
To mark World Health Day (7th April), we are holding a free taster session about our work supporting disabled people impacted by domestic abuse.

 

Did you know that disabled people are more likely to be targeted by abusers

and can experience additional barriers to accessing support? Research has shown that disabled women are twice as likely to be impacted by domestic abuse than non-disabled women.

 

Disabled people are also likely to be subjected to the abuse for a longer time period.

In addition, disabled people are more likely to be subjected to domestic abuse

by an adult family member than non-disabled people.

Find out more in our free taster session.
