Disability Royal Commission

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 reports of people with disabilities that may be experiencing violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation. They aim to:

  • prevent and better protect people living with a disability
  • achieve best practice in reporting, investigating and responding to reports
  • promote a more inclusive society that supports people living with a disability to be more independent.

For more information and how you can be involved, please visit the Disability Royal Commission website.
