Royal Commission Update


The Disability Royal Commission’s Public Hearing 32 in Brisbane in February looked at the policies and practices of providers to prevent violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability. As part of its examination, it revisited the cases of providers whose practices had raised concerns in previous hearings.  

NDS’s Vision is for an inclusive Australia where all people with disability live safely and equitably. Everyone has the right to safe quality services and any instance of abuse, neglect or violence is unacceptable. NDS supports the rights of people with disability to exercise choice and control about matters that affect them.
