‘No one ever deserves it…you need to feel you’re worth something different. Say to yourself that you are worth more. That is so hard for disabled women, what with all the stuff about women being perfect and beautiful’

About DVRCV forums
In addition to our training programs, DVRCV facilitates at least two forums each year to inform service providers across Victoria about current issues in family violence research and practice. Our forums provide a space for experts and practitioners to come together to discuss topics of interest to the family violence and related sectors.
