This video provides an introduction from Chief Investigators, Professor JaneMaree Maher and Dr Jasmine McGowan, to the ‘Identifying economic abuse for women with disability in Victoria: A toolkit’ (available at: https://arts.monash.edu/gender-and-family-violence/research-projects/identifying-economic-abuse-amongst-women-with-disability-in-victoria/identifying-financial-abuse-amongst-women-with-disability).

The research team would like to thank the women who participated in the focus groups and final consultation as well as those who shared their stories with us for the original ANROWS-funded research upon which this project is based. We would also like to extend our thanks to the numerous stakeholders and experts who contributed so generously during the focus groups and afterwards.

We thank the Victorian Women’s Benevolent Trust for funding this project as part of their small grants program in 2018-2019. We would also like to acknowledge the ANROWS funding for Women Disability and Violence: Creating Access to Justice that began this work and we would like to thank members of the research team with whom we worked on this project, Dr Claire Spivakovsky and Professor Jude McCulloch from Monash University, Kara Beavis from Oueensland University of Technology, and Dr Jessica Cadwallader, Meredith Lea and Therese Sands from People with Disability Australia.
