During the current pause on hearings as we adjust to social distancing requirements due to COVID-19, the Disability Royal Commission has released an issues paper ‘focusing on attitudes towards people with disability, and understanding of their rights’.
If you are in need of legal services in relation to the Disability Royal Commission, a new website has been launched. This service is available to both staff and participants, and can be reached at 1800 771 800 during business hours.
If you need help providing feedback, you can ask any of our staff to help, or contact the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission to get advice on 1800 035 544 (TTY 133 677) or visit their website on www.ndiscommission.gov.au.
The Australian Government is providing free advocacy support services for people with disability. Advocates can provide advice, act on your behalf to access supports and help protect your rights. You can learn more by visiting their website here, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
