Today the report around the Disability Royal Commission has been released, with 222 recommendations for change across different areas, such as education, employment, and human rights.
Over the last four and a half years, the Disability Royal Commission has heard the lived experiences of neglect and exploitation via inquiries, round tables, public hearing, and community engagement activities.
It’s a historic day for the disability sector, and some are concerned about what will happen next.
A group of Disability Representative Organisations released a statement about the report release.
