Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability
The Australian Government has recently finalised the beginning of public consultation on the draft Terms of Reference for a Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.
Women with Disabilities Victoria welcomes this decision.We hope to see a greater community awareness of the gendered nature of violence and abuse women with disabilities experience as a result of this Royal Commission.
There will be opportunities to share your story once the Royal Commission is set up.
We know that multiple Royal Commissions running at the same time might be confusing for many people. If you have ideas about how we can make the information easier to understand and more accessible, please let us know.
