A note from WDV

To assist in reducing the spread of Coronavirus, the Women with Disabilities Victoria office will not be open to the public until further notice and WDV staff are mainly working from home.

We are continuing our systemic advocacy and policy work, and reshaping our training and community engagement programs for more online delivery to ensure that we can reach project partners, family violence, disability and other priority workforces most in need of capacity building at this time.

During this time WDV staff will not be participating in face-to-face meetings, but will maintain contact with key stakeholders and funders, project partners and members, via email, e-newsletters, website, mobile phone, tele- and video-conferencing as needed.

We will also be monitoring our WDV email address wdv@wdv.org.au and our office telephone (03) 9286 7800.

WDV remains focused on the delivery of advocacy and funded programs on behalf of women with disabilities in Victoria, within present constraints.

WDV will provide updated information as often as we can.
