The Community Engagement Team of the Disability Royal Commission is Seeking input
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.
The Community Engagement Team is currently working to engage with the multicultural community and elevate the voices of people with disability from different Culturally and linguistically diverse communities.
They have identified 4 priority groups or hard to reach CaLD people with disabilities, which are – new and emerging communities (refuges & asylum seekers), young people, women and girls and LGBTIQA+.
The Royal commission wish to hear from people with disabilities and their families/carers their experiences as to what is working for them and what has not worked for them, especially if they have experienced violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation.
