This morning, Disability Wales and Welsh Women’s Aid launch their joint report – “Supporting Disabled People experiencing violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence in Wales.”
Third sector organisations will launch the report at the joint cross-party group on disability and cross-party group on violence against women and children at the Ty Hywel building in Cardiff.
We know that disabled people experience a disproportionately higher rate of abuse than non-disabled people and the violence experienced is also gendered, with disabled women more likely to experience violence and abuse, over long periods of time.
The report shows the findings from three surveys which were issued to specialised services and survivors of abuse. Disability Wales and Welsh Women’s Aid circulated two surveys; one for violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence specialised services and one for survivors, which was also provided in Easy Read format.
