People with an intellectual or cognitive disability face complex and unique issues when they’ve been involved with the criminal justice system.

The forensic disability services sector has committed professionals and organisations who provide support to people with an intellectual or cognitive disability to prevent any further re-offending. Support can include helping a person to meet their goals, coordinating services, and assisting a person through the criminal justice system.

People who work in the forensic disability services come from a wide range of career backgrounds. But they all share some critical skills – being good communicators, working well with others and having a passion to change someone’s life for the better.
