RFVP Disability Inclusion and Safety Resource Hub

Working with Persons using violence

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.

While the Victorian State Government has taken steps to fill critical service gaps identified by the Royal Commission into Family Violence, knowledge about the demand for perpetrator interventions among different groups and individuals remains limited, including supporting men with disability using violence in the home.

This section includes resources and services that can be considered when supporting persons who use violence.

this report discusses ways to strengthen existing and emerging perpetrator interventions, including through building the capability of workforces that have contact with perpetrators, and identifying new interventions for particular cohorts of perpetrators for whom there are currently limited responses. This includes perpetrators from culturally diverse backgrounds, perpetrators with a cognitive impairment and, significantly, higher risk perpetrators in the community who may have multiple or severe complex needs.
