Preventing abuse and promoting personal safety in young people with disability
New research addresses a knowledge gap about personal safety and abuse prevention by exploring the perspectives of young people with disability, their supporters and families about feeling safe and developing strategies to stay safe. Co-designed by young people with disability, the latest research reveals 4 key aspects to keeping safe - being safe in your body, having your access needs met, being safe in your feelings and feeling like you have control.
The study by Sally Robinson, Anne Graham (SCU), Karen Fisher, Ariella Meltzer, Megan Blaxland and Kelley Johnson (UNSW) provides an in-depth understanding of what ‘being safe’ means to young people with disability, what helps and hinders them to feel and be safe, and how their concerns about safety are perceived and responded to by other people. It is timely and important as the organisations and governments seek to respond to the findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the establishment of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission, and the shifting policy frameworks which young people with disability navigate.
