Supporting Disabled Women Who Experience Domestic Abuse

The aim of this seminar is to explore the relationship between disability and domestic abuse, and reflect on how services can better support disabled women. Disabled women (women with a physical, mental, sensory or intellectual impairment or health condition that affects their daily lives) are two times more likely to experience domestic abuse than non-disabled women. Disabled women are at risk of experiencing more prolonged and severe domestic abuse from a wider range of perpetrators. Yet, research shows that despite having greater need for support services, disabled women are less likely to receive sufficient domestic abuse support from agencies across health, social care and the third sector.

There will be a particular focus on the law of contact, the court processes around court ordered contact and common issues experienced by women and children involved in these court processes.
