Event description

Description

The Australian Government is running a Royal Commission to find out about violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation against people living with disability. Purple Orange has been asked by the Royal Commission to do some research to help them to better understand, and better communicate with, a diverse range of people living with disability.

This focus group is part of a series of discussions Purple Orange will hold with people living with disability in Adelaide, Mount Gambier and Kadina during January and February 2020.

This focus group is all about language. We want to find out how people living with disability understand and talk about violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation. What do these terms mean? Would you use different words to talk about these issues?

We will keep the conversation general and will not ask you about your personal experiences. You do not need to have experienced violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation to take part.

A counsellor will be present at each session if you need someone to talk to. We will do our very best to meet any accessibility needs, including interpreters if required.

Everything you say within the focus groups will be treated confidentially – we will not tell anyone outside our Purple Orange team what you say. We will record the focus group, but the recording will not be shared outside our research team and will be destroyed once the research is complete. The findings of the research will be reported to the Royal Commission, with a final report made public, but you won’t be identified in any reporting.

This focus group is for people living with psychosocial disability. You need to register if you want to participate. If there are no spaces available, take a look at the other focus groups we are running to see if one is suitable for you.

This focus group will run for 90 minutes. You will receive a $60 gift card to thank you for taking part. We can cover travel costs such as local taxi fares if you need.

If you have any questions or need help to register, please contact Rebecca Dowd at JFA Purple Orange by calling 08 8373 8312 or emailing rebeccad@purpleorange.org.au.
