The Illawarra Women’s Health Centre is looking to interview young women aged 18-35 who have an intellectual disability who can be involved in a research project. The interviews will take place from March to May 2016.
The project is called Breaking The Silence and it aims to find out about the experience of young women who may have had violence of any kind in their life. We want to learn how to help these women find safety and get better help with this issue. We want to hear their stories and learn from their experiences.
The interviews will be private and confidential and held at the Centre in Warilla. A woman can contact the Centre herself or can be referred by a disability worker or carer. The interviews will take about an hour.
If you or anyone you know wants to find out more please call Kim Sattler on 4255 6800 to arrange a time to meet. If you want to bring a friend or carer you are welcome to do so.
