Draft Terms of Reference for a Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability


This consultation has now closed.

On 18 February 2019, the Government supported a motion in Parliament to establish a Royal Commission to inquire into violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability.

The Government conducted a public consultation process, via an online survey to hear from people with disability, their families and carers and the disability sector about what the Royal Commission should cover and the supports that might be required.

If you are currently experiencing any form of violence or abuse, or are concerned for your safety, call 000 or contact Police.

If you or a family member need immediate help or counselling, contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or beyondblue on 1300 224 636.
