Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect & Exploitation of People with Disability Issue Paper


This issues paper looks at the awareness and recognition of the rights of people with disability.


We want to learn more about the level of awareness that people with disability, and the wider community, have about the rights of people with disability.

We are also interested in attitudes towards people with disability. We want to know more about how those attitudes develop and what can be done to change them.

The paper is available in Easy Read and PDF through the links below: Issues Paper - Rights and Attitudes
