Draft Terms of Reference Released for Disability Royal Commission

Today (13th March), a draft Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into the Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of people with disability has been released for public comment.

The scope of the Royal Commission will consider all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability in all settings, but with a particular focus on what governments, institutions and the community should do to prevent and respond to such claims and actions.

The drafted areas of focus centre around what governments, institutions and the community should do to prevent and better protect people with disability, encourage reporting and effective responses and what should be done to promote a more inclusive society which supports the independence of people with disability and their right to live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.

With considerations given to each individual’s specific care needs, priorities and perspectives the Royal Commission aims to also include culturally and linguistically diverse people with disability and investigate all aspects of quality and safety of services, including informal supports, provided by governments, institutions and the community to people with disability.

We also look forward to the examples of good practice and innovative models for preventing and responding to any claims of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability.

Youngcare will be giving feedback to the draft Terms of Reference and encourages each of you to do the same.

Public submissions are welcomed through an online survey on the Department of Social Services website until the 28th March. For more information visit http://bit.ly/DisabilityRoyalCommissionTOR
