“Not Now, Not Ever” - What does this have to do with me? Disability and Domestic and Family Violence Training.

Disability service providers have an important role in the lives of people with disability experiencing domestic and family violence. The prevalence rates of this type of violence tell us that it requires closer attention by every disability service provider.

National Disability Services and WorkUP Qld invite the disability workforce and organisations in Queensland to participate in free training, on disability and domestic violence.

This training will be developed and delivered with people with disability and it has been informed by the disability workforce.

This training provides foundational domestic and family violence knowledge for the disability workforce and the ‘how-to’ of effective organisational responses through a series of modules which include:

  • Why this violence occurs and increased risk factors for women with disability.
  • What this type of violence looks like and how it can look different for women with disability.
  • How the workforce can help and how organisations can effectively respond.
  • Who you can contact for support or more information.

Who Should Attend?

Disability and Domestic and Family Violence: What every worker needs to know (modules 1-4) targets personnel undertaking all roles and levels across the disability provider workforce

Disability and Domestic and Family Violence: Effective organisational responses (module 5) targets personnel undertaking Support Coordination; supervisory roles; senior or independent allied health professionals and personnel in senior management and leadership positions.

Get involved and have your say!

Participation in this training provides a unique opportunity to contribute to shaping the final training products through your engagement and feedback.

The training will be delivered in short, live, interactive Zoom webinars, making it easy to participate. A Certificate of Attendance will be provided for participants who complete the whole series.

The disability workforce including government and non-government workers, sole providers and those employed by non-government organisations providing a direct service to people with a disability are the target group for this project.
