WWILD has created a number of easy read resources to assist workers to work with people with intellectual or learning disabilities. We have also compiled useful resources created by other organisations. These resources should not be used alone, but should be used to help talk through issues and information.
Victims of Crime
Information for Victims of Crime – WWILD Easy Read victims of crime page.
Other topics available:
- What to do if Someone has Committed a Crime Against You
- Reporting to Police
- Rights of Victims in the Legal System (Queensland)
- What to Expect
- Going to Court and more
What is Counselling? – this can help to talk with someone about what is involved in counselling and whether they may wish to try counselling. This page is WWILD-specific, but we would suggest other organisations create their own Easy English ‘What is counselling?’ page.
WWILD Support for Victims – link to information about WWILD’s victims of crime support work. We provide information, case management, and referral to victims of crime who have an intellectual disability. Click on the links on the left hand side for info about our victims of crime services.
Sexual Assault – When Sex is Not OK – booklet from CASA (Centre Against Sexual Assault) Victoria. Topics include: what is sexual assault, important things to know about sexual assault, and how you may feel.
Have you been hurt by someone? – an easy read document from Victim Assist Queensland (VAQ) about what do to and where to get help if someone has hurt you. VAQ are within the Department of Justice and Attorney General and provide information, referral and financial assistance to victims of crime in Queensland.
What to do if someone hurts you or does bad things to you – Developed by Human Rights Watch in collaboration with disabled persons’ organisations (DPOs) and gender-based violence service providers, this resource shows how to recognise, prevent, and protect against gender-based violence, including by distinguishing between “good” and “bad” touch, and explains how to seek legal, medical, and psychosocial support.
Relationships and Safety
A self protection education program produced by TRUE Relationships and Reproductive Health.
Some of us have or want a partner, a girlfriend or a boyfriend. Some of us have or want a sexual relationship.You can keep safe and happy in a sexual relationship. This brochure covers topics such as safe sex practices, consent and what constitutes a sexual relationship.
