The utterly heartbreaking stories about people with disability that have come out over the last few weeks prove just how important it is that we have a Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.
And although the Commission has put public hearings on hold during the pandemic, they still need to hear from our community.
Here’s what they want to hear about right now, and how you can get involved.
Yesterday the Joint Standing Committee into the NDIS released a report into Supported Independent Living (or SIL for short). And once again the committee made a bunch of practical and sensible recommendations which would really make a difference to people with disability and their families.
This is just a very small note to say a very big thank you to every single one of you who took the time to send us a message for the Tune Review. In just a few short weeks almost 700 people from all across the country sent us stories, messages and ideas for us to pass along to David Tune’s independent review of the NDIS Act and Rules. We read/listened/watched them all – and here’s what everyone said…
Hundreds of Every Australian Counts supporters have already sent us their thoughts and ideas for us to pass on to the Joint Standing Committee inquiries into planning and Supported Independent Living (SIL).
There are just less than two weeks left to share your thoughts on how we can help the NDIS put in place clear rules that will make sure people receive supports and services that are high in quality and safe – wherever they live in Australia.
