Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability
The Disability Royal Commission was established in April 2019 in response to community concern about widespread reports of violence against, and the neglect, abuse and exploitation of, people with disability. These incidents might have happened recently or a long time ago.
.The Disability Royal Commission will investigate:
preventing and better protecting people with disability from experiencing violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation
achieving best practice in reporting, investigating and responding to violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability
promoting a more inclusive society that supports people with disability to be independent and live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
