We have created videos to share our learning and experiences from the Listen Up! Project. These training videos have been co-designed and co-presented with the WWILD peer workers.  

Take a look through the videos, as they are tailored for workers across various fields. See which ones spark your interest! 

These videos are aimed primarily at workers who work in the community development field, or those who work alongside people who have experienced domestic, family or sexual violence.  

However, the ‘Identifying Intellectual Disability’ and ‘Peer Workers’ videos are a great watch for anyone interested in recruiting peer workers within their team. It is also useful for anyone wanting to learn more about intellectual disability and how to talk about it.  

TIP: You do not need to watch them in order – feel free to watch one or all!
