Report—Preventing abuse and promoting personal safety in young people with disability

8 March 2018

This report explores the perspectives of young people with disability, their supporters and their families about personal safety.

This report has been published by the Centre for Children and Young People, Southern Cross University.

It examines what being safe means to young people with disability, what assists or hinders them to feel safe and how their concerns about safety are perceived and responded to by others. Young people's strategies and ideas about how their personal safety could be improved are also discussed, including:

  • having physical and emotional safety needs met
  • having access needs addressed
  • feeling confident and self-reliant with their own safety

Access the report via the Centre for Children and Young People website.
