RFVP Disability Inclusion and Safety Resource Hub

Applying a disability lens to MARAM

The Disability Inclusion and Safety Resource Hub has been developed for organisations and practitioners who are working with people with disability who are experiencing or using family violence. 

The Resource Hub provides ready access to important resources that promote safety, accessibility, equity and inclusion of people with disability which can aid in reducing barriers and increasing safety.  Resources are relevant to Organisational Leaders, Specialist Family Violence and Sexual Assault Practitioners, Disability Services, Health, Family Support, Education and others.


These tools provides detailed disability and NDIS focused prompts to compliment the MARAM victim-survivor focused comprehensive risk assessment, Safety Planning and Risk Management tools.  The additional questions/prompts are designed to elicit further detail about family violence risk and safety when practitioners are conducting their usual risk assessments in line with the MARAM framework.

This tool can be used alongside the SHIP or TRAM portal or other database your service uses to log details and to identify risk and protective factors related to disability and the NDIS.
