In 2002, the Alberta Committee of Citizens with Disabilities (ACCD) completed a research project that examines the issue of violence against women with disabilities in Alberta. As a part of that project, we interviewed women with disabilities, victim services staff, women’s shelter directors, counsellors, caregivers, and many other front-line workers. Through these interviews, we learned that many people with disabilities, their advocates, and frontline workers felt they did not have adequate access to training/awareness-raising materials that raise awareness about violence against women/people with disabilities. They felt the materials they were using were out of date, more relevant to non-disabled individuals, or not readily obtainable.
In response, ACCD has developed this inventory of training/awareness-raising materials that focus on the issue of violence against people with disabilities. Our goal is to help these people, their advocates and families, caregivers, and other front-line workers to take action against violence through education and training.
