Want to know what makes services accessible for women with intellectual disability who have experienced violence?

Hear it from the experts in this field;
that is, women who have an intellectual disability!
 

WWILD Sexual Violence Prevention Association Inc. created the And You Think You’re the Expert? podcast as part of the Listen Up! Project.

For this project, we consulted with women who have an intellectual disability about what makes safe, accessible services for them, after an experience of violence, such as sexual assault and/or domestic and family violence. 

We have created a 7-episode podcast and an accompanying booklet that discusses disability, violence and accessibility and is hosted by the experts!

Each episode, our experts interview a worker in this field; a sexual violence counsellor, a domestic violence worker, a support worker, a support coordinator, a mental health worker and a police officer.

Our experts offer their wisdom and advice to the workers. 

So, grab a cuppa, get comfy and listen up!
