In April 2019 the Australian Government established The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.
The Royal Commission is an important opportunity for people with disability, their families and carers to share their stories. By doing so they can inform its recommendations about how society can better ensure people with disability are treated with respect and dignity and that they live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
At Centacare we believe that everyone deserves respect and the opportunity to live the life they choose. We’re committed to supporting the Royal Commission’s enquiry process in whatever way we can, including continuing to support our clients, their families, workers and volunteers.
We’re also committed to making a positive contribution towards the outcomes of the Royal Commission through the experience and knowledge we have in this area.
When will the Royal Commission report its findings?
Hearings began on 16 September 2019, with an interim report expected by 30 October 2020. The final report is due by 29 April 2022.
Where can I find out more about the Royal Commission?
You can find out more by going to the official Royal Commission website.
