Welcome to Neve

Neve is a safe, accessible space for women, girls, and gender-diverse people with disabilities. Here, we explore our shared experiences. Some experiences are hard, like discrimination, violence and sexual harm. Some experiences are empowering, like getting the most out of life and becoming stronger after hard experiences. Neve offers a place to learn and a place to take action. It's inclusive, with information and advice for families, supporters and professionals. There's only one thing you'll never find on Neve—judgement. You're in control of your life and choices. Neve is about supporting our community to live safe and fulfilled lives. Neve is here to support you.

Neve co-designers Nadia Brady and WWDA Board President, Karin Swift, with friend Brontè Munt

The Neve Project

Women With Disabilities Australia (WWDA) received funding from the Department of Social Services' Family and Safety Program in April 2022. This funding was to provide accessible information about sex, relationships and violence and abuse.

WWDA sponsors the Our Site website (external link), a website by and for women, girls, feminine identifying and non-binary people with disabilities. The focus of Our Site is leadership, rights, life choices, sex and our bodies, and safety from violence. The funding WWDA received in 2022 was initially to expand Our Site. Through thorough co-design, it quickly became clear that what women with disability wanted was a new website to cover the range of topics chosen in co-design.

The new website is the Neve website. This website was co-design, co-produced, written and reviewed by and for women with disabilities. Here you can explore the topics under the headings Wellbeing, Support, Staying safe, Families and For professionals (all internal links).

Who created this website?

The Neve website was created by:

  • Over 200 women with disabilities, their family members, supports and professionals working in a range of support sectors.
  • The Project Steering Committee.
  • WWDA staff and the project team.

You can find out more about us on the Neve page Team (internal link).
