The Prevention and Management of Abuse: Guide for Services funded by Disability Support Services

This guide has been developed to provide clear and effective guidance to safeguard the disabled people who receive support funded by Disability Support Services.

Safeguarding disabled people involves preventing abuse, creating a better understanding of signs that abuse is occurring and developing appropriate and responsive systems to deal with incidents of abuse.

It is essential that disability support service providers understand the known risks and indicators of abuse.
