Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability – call for feedback on the draft terms of reference
The Federal Government has released the draft terms of reference for the upcoming Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability. The Royal Commission will be a chance for people with disability, their families and carers to tell their stories about their experiences. The Government has said that it will hold the Royal Commission, but there is no firm date of when it will start, but it is very likely to be this year.
The Government would like some feedback on the draft terms of reference and there is a simple survey form to provide your views. This feedback closes on 28 March and only take a few minutes to complete. The survey asks for your opinions on different things that could be included in the Royal Commission. It asks you to provide a bit of information about yourself, but it does not ask you for your name, address or any kind of contact details.
The feedback is just about how the Royal Commission will be run. It is not the place to provide any information about your experiences, that will come when the Royal Commission starts.
