Disability Royal Commission Public Hearing 20 Report released

Royal Commission Update


The Royal Commission has released a Commissioner’s report on Public Hearing 20, which examined the experiences of people with disability engaging with the service provider Life Without Barriers (LWB). The report has significant implications for the broader sector. 

All providers are encouraged to read the report, particularly the findings, recommendations and themes. There is a clear expectation from the Royal Commission that disability service organisations follow the outcomes of the public hearings and reflect on what these might mean for their organisational and individual practices in better protecting people with disability from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
