What is the Disability Royal Commission?

A Royal Commission has been set up to look at the issue of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with a disability. The Royal Commission will provide advice to the Australian Government and their terms of reference include advising on what should be done to:

  • prevent, and better protect, people with disability from experiencing violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation
  • achieve best practice in reporting and investigating of, and responding to violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation
  • promote a more inclusive society that supports the independence of people with disability and their right to live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.

The Royal Commission has set up a website and has easy read information sheets as well as an Auslan video about their work:

How do I talk to the Disability Royal Commission?

The Royal Commission website has information about contacting them and/or speaking at a hearing here.

However, some people may feel they need more information about what they can expect or may want someone to speak on their behalf. You can find additional information on legal, emotional and financial support as well as advocacy on the Royal Commission website here.
