Domestic abuse of disabled women in Wales

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 21 January 2013
The aim of the research project was to address an almost total knowledge gap relating to a cohort of Welsh society who are likely to experience multiple discrimination and social exclusion.

Disabled women can fall through the gaps of service provision, because mainstream domestic abuse services may not have the resources to deal with the specificities of abuse experienced by disabled women.

National and local policies and practices lack appropriate measures to ensure disabled women receive the appropriate level of support at the right time.
