The We Matter Too! project addresses the needs of disabled young people facing domestic abuse.
The project was funded by the Lloyds Bank Foundation as part of a series of projects looking at domestic violence.
It explored gaps in domestic abuse service provisions and awareness of practitioners working with disabled young people, as identified by SafeLives and Women’s Aid. ACT, in partnership with Anita Franklin at Coventry University, carried out work that specifically addresses the needs of young disabled people.
You can read the project’s full report, as well as an executive summary, here.
We’ve also created a short film about the project that explores some of its key findings. The film also offers some advice on how we can help disabled young people facing domestic abuse.
