Respect Victoria Collaboration

Our team are working with Respect Victoria on a  family violence prevention project for women with disability.

Dr Georgina Sutherland and Professor Anne Kavanagh from the Disability and Health Unit and Associate Professor Cathy Vaughan from the Gender and Women’s Health Unit, Centre for Health Equity, have received funding from Victoria’s new statutory agency in family violence prevention, Respect Victoria.

Informed by a participatory action research approach, the project aims to develop and test the feasibility of a co-designed primary prevention intervention for women with disability.

The research team includes Jen Hargrave (University of Melbourne and Women with Disabilities Victoria), Lauren Krnjacki (University of Melbourne) and Professor Gwynnyth Llewellyn (University of Sydney).
