Taxi Services Survey

Taxi Services Survey

Your Experience Using Taxi Services Survey

WDV is interested in hearing from you about your experience in using taxi services. Availability, waiting time, call center experience, driver behavior and more.

This survey is for all members who wish to participate.

The survey has been developed by Barwon Hub members over growing concerns that maxi taxi availability is limited, that sedans are sent instead of a wheelchair accessible vehicle, and that people are being left for long periods of time waiting to be picked up creating anxiety and placing women and gender diverse people with disability at risk.

Please take the time to fill out the survey if you have experiences of your own that you would like to share with WDV to assist in gathering information to create change.

Family Violence and Disability Films

Family Violence and Disability Films

WDV and National Disability Services (NDS) produce Family Violence and Disability Films

Women with Disabilities Victoria has collaborated with National Disability Services to develop four short films for disability workers on family violence and disability.

The films are:
• Preventing and responding to family violence
• Prevention of domestic and family violence
• Early intervention in domestic and family violence
• Responding to domestic and family violence

The purpose of the films is to help disability workers identify and respond to family violence. Research shows that people with disabilities experience higher rates of violence than people without disabilities. Women with disabilities in particular experience very high rates of family and domestic violence. The disability workforce has a vital role to play in preventing, identifying and responding to domestic and family violence.

 The films model best practice in accessibility. One version has an Auslan interpreter and subtitles. A second version of each film is audio described.
