In 2020 NZDSN held an introductory Symposium to help participants, from within and connected to the disability community, to understand the Safeguarding Framework. NZDSN now offering a follow up two-day workshop to embed and action this understanding.

Violence within families or whānau seriously impacts the health and wellbeing of all involved. Experiencing violence can be disabling, while use of violence is common against disabled people.

These workshops bring together disability, sexual and domestic violence, and health care sectors to develop a shared community understanding and actions to improve outcomes for those impacted by violence.

  • Day 1 (Thursday 2 December): Exploring issues of violence against disabled people, who is an adult at risk and the safeguarding framework
    Day 2 (Friday 3 December): Identifying key issues and developing an integrated community response.

To build upon understanding throughout the workshops, organisations are encouraged to register people who are committed to attending both days.

This workshop is organised by the New Zealand Disability Support Network (NZDSN) and facilitated by the Personal Advocacy and Safeguarding Adults Trust (PASAT).
