Disability Royal Commission Report
The Final Report of the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability was tabled on 29 September 2023.
The 12-volume report devotes a volume to the voices of people with disability, and also includes an introductory volume with an Executive Summary and the Commissioners’ vision for an inclusive Australia.
The report contains 222 recommendations to promote a more inclusive society that supports the independence of people with disability and their right to live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
The Royal Commission has also published ‘A brief guide to the Final Report’ which explains how information is organised in the Final Report. This guide is suitable for people with disability, their families and carers, other members of the Australian community, disability advocates, service providers and people looking to quickly find the information they need.
At Nulsen Disability Services, we eagerly await the Australian Government’s response to all 222 recommendations by 31 March 2024 and the laws, systems and practices that will contribute to improved lives and outcomes for people with disability.
