DSC has recently released the Building Safe and Respectful Cultures report. The report was a pilot research project exploring the prevention of violence, abuse and neglect of people with disability in Victoria.
The project aimed to understand the role of culture in promoting safety and well-being and addressing the conditions that lead to violence, abuse and neglect in disability services.
This was a co-produced research project, completed by a team of academic researchers, staff from the Disability Services Commissioner (DSC) and community researchers, people with lived experience of disability. The project ran between June 2018 and April 2019.
