Research and evaluation
eSafety has conducted research into the experiences and impacts of technology-facilitated abuse on Australian women living with intellectual or cognitive disability.
The research will help inform education and prevention initiatives for disability workers and frontline domestic and family violence workers, as well as the women they support. The insights will also contribute to ongoing resource and policy development.
eSafety’s professional development training and resources for disability workforces have been independently evaluated. Participants were satisfied with the training program content and delivery. The majority reported they were extremely or very likely to recommend the training to colleagues.
eSafety has online safety advice and resources for people living with disability.
