The Terms of Reference for the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission) are to explore what should be done to:
- prevent, and better protect people with disability from experiencing violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation
- achieve best practice in reporting and investigating of, and responding to violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation
- promote a more inclusive society that supports the independence of people with disability and their right to live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.
In other words- absolutely everything. Seriously, the scope of this Royal Commission is freaking huge, especially when you compare it to previous inquiries. It is wide enough to avoid leaving anyone out. And that is exactly what makes it so damn exciting.
