The ‘Whatever it takes: Access for women with disabilities to domestic and family violence services’ research has used innovative approaches to hear from and include women with disabilities from research to translation. In this presentation we talked about how we did this work together including how our findings have been translated into new resources being presented at the conference, and soon to be embedded in practice through the 1800RESPECT disability pathways project. You heard about our ‘One size does not fit all’ approach that included: better understanding what ‘Nothing about us without us’ looks like; how to use the 5 ‘A’s’ of understanding access; collaborating without clashing and; ‘finding out about us with us’. The research to practice approach and outcomes presented here provide a template for true co-design and will inspire you to work closely with women with disabilities in services and research.
