"Women from non-English speaking backgrounds (NESB) with disability experience various forms of violence, however due to poor data collection and reporting, the incidence is difficult to estimate. The interaction of disability, culture and violence places women from NESB with disability in disempowered positions with poor access to culturally appropriate information and service provision. This report is a culmination of our individual advocacy work, several consultations with women from NESB with disability and carers who have experienced domestic violence and roundtable discussions with key policy makers and service providers"
