Disability Royal Commission Support
Anglicare Tasmania supports the important work of the Disability Royal Commission.
All people have the right to live free of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
The Disability Royal Commission (DRC) was established in April 2019 in response to community concern about widespread reports of violence against, and the neglect, abuse and exploitation of, people with disability.
The DRC is receiving submissions and holding community forums, private sessions and public hearings (formal proceedings in which witnesses give evidence, under oath or affirmation).
There is counselling and advocacy support available for:
– people who have experienced or been affected by violence, neglect, abuse or exploitation,
– or who are thinking of taking part in the DRC.
Support is free, independent and confidential.
