Invitation from the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (DRC)

The Royal Commission is now well underway and is inviting people to share
experiences of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability.
The Synod of Victoria and Tasmania welcomes this Royal Commission and is
committed to responding actively and fully. The Commission provides an opportunity
for us to work together with people with disability to create a society that is inclusive,
respectful of difference and where all people are valued and honoured.
If you have experienced violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation as a person with a
disability, or are aware of this happening, we encourage you to tell your story or
make a submission to the Disability Royal Commission. You can do this in writing or
by asking for a private session with a Commissioner. It can be distressing and
difficult to raise these issues and the Commission can provide you with counselling
and support. Click for more information
