The Disability Royal Commission wants to hear from all Australians about their experiences of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability.
A submission is the main way people and organisations can provide information to the Royal Commission about their experiences of violence, neglect, abuse or exploitation of people with disability. Anybody can make a submission.

The Royal Commission particularly wants to hear about:

Incidents of violence, neglect, abuse or exploitation of people with disability
Complaints processes and outcomes
Lack of access to support or services
Quality of disability support services
Examples of best practice and innovation

The Royal Commission cannot resolve individual cases. It cannot award compensation or force a person or organisation to take actions.

Rights in Action can assist people to write their submission who live in Atherton, Babinda, Cairns – North, Cairns – South, Kuranda, Malanda – Yungaburra, Tablelands and Yarrabah.

If you want to raise concerns about the quality of care and NDIS services of being delivered to people with disability, you can also contact the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.

Advocate can:

Protect your rights
Help you say what you want to say
Provide advice in your best interest
Act on your behalf to get the supports you need
