Tackling violence and abuse against disabled women in coproduction with mental health, social care and housing services

The research project will involve disabled women aged 16 and over who are survivors of violence and abuse across England and Wales.

The purpose of the research is to evidence the following – What do disabled women want from services to help them stay safe in the medium and longer term after violence and abuse?  What can service providers learn from serious case investigations to prevent violence and abuse?  How can mental health, social care and housing providers improve longer term services for disabled women?  How can services work together to create safer and more inclusive communities for disabled women 16 years and over?

The project will be coproduced in partnership with Vision Sense, Against Violence and Abuse and the Centre for Disability Research (Lancaster University).
