The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability is inquiring into all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability in all settings and contexts.

Uniting Vic.Tas welcomes the ongoing work of the Disability Royal Commission. We are fully committed to responding to any requests for information in an active and transparent manner.

The Commission provides an opportunity for us to work together with people with disability to create a society that is more inclusive and respectful of difference and one where all people are valued and honoured.

As a provider of disability services, we look forward to making a contribution to the national conversation about the future of disability care.

People can contribute to the Disability Royal Commission in several ways including making a submission, requesting a private session and responding to Issues Papers.

Submissions can be made online or via email, telephone or post.

The Australian Government is funding legal advisory, counselling and advocacy services for people who need support to be involved in the Disability Royal Commission.

More information, including links to submission forms in Auslan and Easy Read formats can be found on the Disability Royal Commission website
