Royal Commission releases Accessibility and inclusion strategy
The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability has released its Accessibility and inclusion strategy (the Strategy).
The Strategy outlines the principles that will guide the Royal Commission in its engagement with people with disability. It commits the Royal Commission to putting people with disability first in everything we do and explains how we will achieve this.
The Strategy was released in draft form for public consultation in August. This current version reflects feedback we received from the community.
The Strategy will be reviewed and updated periodically throughout the duration of the Royal Commission.
Chair of the Disability Royal Commission, the Hon Ronald Sackville AO QC said:
'The Accessibility and inclusion strategy has been developed and reviewed in consultation with people with disability and advocacy groups. It is essential we continue to adapt the strategy, as we learn what can be done more appropriately and effectively. We welcome any comments at any stage during the life of the Royal Commission.'
The Disability Royal Commission will launch a new website with improved accessibility in January 2020.
The Accessibility and inclusion strategy and an Easy Read version are available on our website.
