STAYING SAFE and UNDERSTANDING ABUSE - Free forum in Broadmeadows
Abuse and Neglect: ‘It’s not OK’
NDS and VALID have partnered to launch new training and resources targeted to service users, direct support workers and supervisors to recognise and understand abuse, neglect and violence toward people with disability. We invite you to attend the full forum, or to attend the session that is most relevant to you.
9.30 - 10.00am: Registration
10.00am – 11.30am: During the first session, VALID will introduce their new training program; 'Staying Safe', for people with disability. This session is primarily aimed at people with disability and the people who support them. It includes video scenarios and information on types of abuse including financial abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, physical abuse and sexual abuse. The session will promote the message that ‘Everyone has the right to live free from Abuse and Neglect’.
11.30am – 1.00pm: In the second session, NDS will introduce their new e-learning and downloadable resources for 'Understanding Abuse', developed as part of the Victorian Zero Tolerance Projects. The resources are designed to promote a change in the way abuse and neglect are understood, and to offer practical tools to be used by individuals, teams and in supervision. This session is primarily aimed at support workers, team leaders and supervisors wishing to learn about the new resources and how they can be used in your organisation.
