Call to contribute: People with disabilities reporting crime

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission is conducting research into the experiences of people with disabilities in Victoria when they report crimes against the person. The project aims to:

  • identify the nature and extent of crimes against people with disabilities in Victoria
  • understand what barriers people with disabilities face when reporting crime and gaining redress
  • work with Victoria Police and other authorities to break down these barriers and provide better services to people with disabilities.

They are keen to hear from people with any type of disability, including mental health disabilities. Carers, family members, social workers, service providers and police are also encouraged to participate. Find out more here.
