Description

This booklet has been developed to raise awareness among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people about an abuse and neglect reporting service called Hotline. Hotline is a free telephone service for people with disabilities to report instances of abuse and neglect.

The booklet provides information on Hotline's services and how to get in touch with someone who can offer help. Also in the booklet are hypothetical case studies and examples of how Hotline's services can be used. The booklet has been designed to appeal to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and therefore includes Indigenous artwork and drawings.
