Joint statement from
• People with Disability Australia (PWDA)
• Disability Advocacy Network Australia (DANA)
• Inclusion Australia

Disability Royal Commission public hearing 26, beginning 29 August 2022, will focus on the experiences of people with disability who have experienced homelessness, including living in boarding houses and other forms of insecure or inadequate housing.

In this statement we have outlined a range of concerns and recommendations around housing for people with disability. We ask the Royal Commission to consider these in its hearing and subsequent work towards a final report.
