How do I tell my story to the Disability Royal Commission?

Make a submission

You can write down your story, or record it on video or audio file, and send it to the Disability Royal Commission here.

You can also set up a time to make your submission over the phone by calling 1800 517 199.

A submission doesn’t need to be a polished report, and it’s okay if you can’t remember all the details. You can tell your story in your own way, in your own words.

You can also tell your story in any language and in the format you choose (written, audio, video, over the phone or in person).

If you would like information in your own language about making a submission, you can call the Australian Government Translating and Interpreting Service on 131 450. Ask to be connected to 07 3734 1900.

Ask for a private session to speak with a Royal Commissioner

You can ask to speak directly and privately with one of the Royal Commissioners. Some private sessions are now being held over video calls (due to COVID-19). There is currently a waiting list for private sessions and it may take a few months for the Royal Commission to arrange your session once you have applied.

You can make an application for a private session here.
