AMPARO Advocacy was very excited to be approached by the School of Public Health and Social Work at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2013 to participate in a research project: An exploration of the barriers to services and inclusion of refugees living with disability.
“Disadvantage and disability: Experiences of people from refugee backgrounds with disability living in Australia”
This paper reports on a small study undertaken as a first step in building knowledge and regarding the lived experience of the nexus between refugee background and disability.
“Restrictive practices on refugees in Australia with intellectual disability and challenging behaviours: a family’s story.”
The purpose of this paper is to explore the experiences of a refugee family navigating complex disability and restrictive practice service system.
