What's next?

The Disability Royal Commission finished accepting submissions in 2022. Their final report is due by September 2023.

That’s when disability representative organisations, people with disability and our allies get to work advocating for governments to implement key recommendations with appropriate speed and scale. The DRC’s job will be done, and it will be up to the community to hold governments accountable and press them to respond to the report with serious positive change for people with disability.

Find out more about the changes PWDA called for in our DRC submissions.
