UnitingCare Australia today welcomes the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability
UnitingCare Australia works to support the most vulnerable people living in Australia. This is the time to hear the lived experience of those with a disability and to explore the changes that are needed to promote best practice and transform society.
National Director, Claerwen Little, said: “We are called to consider the fact that people with disability have for too long confronted violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
“This long-awaited Royal Commission is an opportunity for us to work together to create a society that is inclusive, respectful of difference and for everyone to have the life they aspire to.”
We are committed to working with the Royal Commission throughout the process openly and transparently to realise the fundamental rights of people living with disabilities.
