People with disabilities are more likely to experience domestic abuse than the wider population.
Those living with disabilities may be more vulnerable to certain kinds of abusive behaviour such as coercive controlling behaviour, financial abuse and being isolated from sources of support. They may also face additional barriers that can make it harder for them to access support such as discrimination from the wider population.
Although there are barriers there is also lots of support out there. There are a number of services which provide specialist support, accommodation facilities and advice. If you or somebody you know is experiencing domestic abuse please feel free to contact our Referral and Advice line on 020 8317 8273 or see below to find more specialist support services.
