IDDC Inclusive Safeguarding Statement

People with disabilities are three times more likely to experience physical violence, sexual violence and emotional violence than people without disabilities. Safeguarding is not simply a risk mitigation exercise – it is critical to ensuring that the rights of people with disabilities are upheld.

Our new inclusive safeguarding statement outlines why disability-inclusive safeguarding is so important, how safeguarding principles can be made relevant for people with disabilities, and supports advocacy efforts to demand change.
