Disability Royal Commission

OPA continues to actively participate in and contribute to the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability – an inquiry of great importance for people with disability and the disability sector.

In addition to multiple submissions, the Public Advocate and two Community Visitors appeared as witnesses at the Royal Commission’s December 2019 hearings in Melbourne.
