The Disability Royal Commission has been asked to investigate the violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with all kinds of disability in all settings within an Australian context.
This is a truly enormous task, and it’s become apparent that three years is not enough time to give the investigation the proper attention it deserves, particularly with delays caused by COVID-19.
The Hon. Ronald Sackville, Chair of the Disability Royal Commission, has requested a 17-month extension.
We support this call, and we ask you to do the same by writing to the Attorney-General Michaelia Cash. You can use our sample letter, or edit as you like, using the form here.
People with disability experience violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation at highly disproportionate rates. We must be heard, and we need more time to tell our stories.
