We’re taking action to stop violence against people with disability.

People with disability, especially girls and women with disability, are over-represented as victims of crime. People with disability are more likely to be victims of violence, fraud and sexual assault. They are also more likely to experience multiple episodes of all forms of abuse and neglect.

Disability Royal Commission

We are closely following the Royal Commission Into Violence, Abuse, Exploitation And Neglect Of People With Disability.

We also have a dedicated website with information about our work with the DRC and how we can support people with disability to tell their story to the DRC. Read more about our DRC work.

Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse

We were funded to support people with disability who may be affected by the 2013 Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Individual advocacy

We can support people with disability experiencing or who have experience violence in situations that are not emergencies. Find out more about our support services on our Get Help page.
