The Disability Royal Commission needs to hear Central Coast voices

By Family Advocacy
Posted: 4 May 2022
Family Advocacy NSW, a disability advocacy organisation, is running a free workshop for people with disability and their families who live in the Central Coast and have a story to tell to the Disability Royal Commission. A representative from the Commission will also be present.

The Disability Royal Commission is investigating the experiences of people with disability in Australia and is asking people to share with them what they have witnessed or experienced.

Examples of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation are needed to inform the Commission and help them understand what goes wrong. The Commission works to prevent and better protect people with disability from experiencing these things in the future.

This is a historic opportunity to influence positive and social change in Australia. To do its job well the Commission needs to understand what is happening for people with disability. It needs to hear what isn't working, and also what does work.

The Commission needs to hear voices of experience, and this workshop will be a safe place where participants will receive the support, structure and space to capture what they need to say.

This interactive workshop is designed to support people as a group. There will be real examples of submissions and experienced advocates to support people.

The "Tell the Royal Commission" workshop will run on Thursday 12 May 2022, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm, Central Coast Leagues Club - 1 Dane Dr, Gosford NSW. Morning tea will be provided.
