DFV Common Risk and Safety Framework: What does it mean for disability service providers
People with disability are almost twice as likely to experience domestic and family violence, can experience unique types of domestic and family violence and often have greater barriers to reporting abuse and accessing support.
It is important that disability service providers are aware of the signs of domestic and family violence and how they might best support people with disability to access appropriate support.
The Domestic and family violence common risk and safety framework (the CRASF) is a whole-of-system framework that guides the delivery of integrated service responses to enhance the safety of victim-survivors and their children.
Trudi Peters, Integration Manager, Ipswich and Cherbourg, Office for Women and Violence Prevention, will discuss the CRASF, how is applies to disability service providers and how it can assist providers to best support people with disability who may be experiencing domestic and family violence.
Attendees will have an opportunity for Q&A with the presenter at the end of the session.
