Ask our Leaders for a Royal Commission Now!
CoMHWA supports the campaign efforts of Australian peak disability campaign alliance to achieve a Royal Commission.
Please sign the DPOA’s petition for a Royal Commission and forward to your networks.
The Disabled People’s Organisations of Australia (DPOA) is calling on the Federal Government [repeat petition link] to reconsider its recent refusal to conduct a Royal Commission into violence and abuse of people with disability, including people with mental health issues.
A Royal Commission was recommended by the National Senate Inquiry into Violence, Neglect and Abuse of Persons with Disabilities. This recommendation was not accepted by the Commonwealth government.
CoMHWA recommended a Royal Commission in its submission to the Inquiry, and feel it is absolutely necessary for survivors in their quest for truth, apology, justice and healing. You can view our submission here.
