By sharing your experiences with the Disability Royal Commission you are helping the Royal Commission to:
- understand the extent of violence, abuse neglect and exploitation being perpetrated against people with disability,
- learn more about when and where abuse against people with disability is likely to occur,
- understand the real impact of violence, abuse neglect and exploitation on people with disability and our communities, and
- make well-evidenced recommendations to the government for structural change in their final report.
It will also mean that disability advocacy organisations will have a larger body of evidence to draw from when campaigning for positive change in the future.
It’s important to remember that the Disability Royal Commission is focused on long-term goals for change and justice but is not able to respond to an immediate need for intervention or support.
If you are in immediate danger you can call the police or emergency services on 000.
