LISTEN UP! Project Workshops 2020 & 2021
WWILD is seeking women who have an intellectual disability for workshops across Queensland. These two day workshops will focus on safety and rights within relationships and organisations, information about violence and skills to access safety. We would like to talk to each participant prior to the workshops for a pre-group interview. In addition to the workshops this year, we are hoping to meet with participants again next year again (dates to be confirmed). These workshops are not suitable for women currently experiencing domestic violence or in crisis.
