What Does WWILD Do
At WWILD we can provide support and information to people with intellectual or learning disabilities who are at risk of, or have been victims of sexual violence, or other types of crime or exploitation.
Information, Advice and Referral:
If you have been a victim of sexual assault or other types of crime, you may want to know:
- what help is available to you
- what are your choices or options
- and where you can go for help.
We can also help you find other services for:

The best way to find out information is for us to talk to you or a support person over the phone or in person. Information, advice and referral is available Queensland-wide.

LISTEN UP! Project 2022 – 2023
We are currently making some animation videos with women who have intellectual disabilities and have experienced violence.
The videos aim to challenge the myths and assumptions people make about women with intellectual disabilities and how this affects the rates of violence experienced by this group.
We will also be developing online training to be presented in 2022 alongside our project peer workers.
