While we acknowledge their significant progress so far, we believe several areas remain unexamined in the Disability Royal Commission’s public work or require further inquiry to make specific recommendations.
In response, national Disability Representative Organisations have worked together on a joint submission to the DRC outlining gaps in the scope of work undertaken to date and issues that require further examination. It includes suggestions for a deeper look into critical areas such as:
- Employment and financial security
- Inclusive homes and communities
- Safety rights and justice
- Personal and community support
- Education and learning
- Health and well being
- Community attitudes
Our joint submission supports the vital work to date of the Royal Commission and offers further advice and input to inform the recommendations that will follow in 2023.
