Wednesday 28th November 2012 is ‘Disability Awareness Day’ of White Ribbon Week. Domestic violence is a particular issue for disabled people. Many people find it hard to believe that disabled people can experience domestic violence. A disabled person may find it harder to protect themselves or to access sources of help. They may also rely on their abuser for support to live independently and fear losing their independence if they leave the relationship.
