The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability recently released a Draft Accessibility Strategy.
This Strategy explains the principles that will guide the Royal Commission in its engagement with people with disability. It commits the Royal Commission to putting people with disability first in everything they do and explains how this objective will be achieved.
It is available on the Royal Commission website in accessible and Easy Read versions.
The Commission is seeking feedback on the Draft Accessibility Strategy from people with disability and their carers, and the disability sector. Feedback can be provided by:
- Calling the Royal Commission information line on 1800 517 199 (9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday AEDT), or
- Via email DRCenquiries@royalcommission.gov.au.
The deadline for initial comments or feedback is Friday 13 September 2019. It will then be reviewed and updated periodically as a result of ongoing feedback.
