24 July 2020
  • The Disability Royal Commission wants to know about First Nations people and

    • violence
    • abuse
    • neglect
    • exploitation

    First Nations people are also called Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

  • First Nations people with disability can face more challenges than other people.

    Challenges include

    • getting a good education
    • getting good healthcare
    • discrimination

    Discrimination is when you treat someone badly because of something about them they cannot change.

  • The Royal Commission wants discrimination and abuse of First Nations people to end.

    They want to know how to make things better.

    They have questions you can answer.

    You can read the questions in their First Nations People with Disability in Australia issues paper.

    The paper is available in Easy Read.

  • You must answer the questions before September 11.

    If you want to answer the questions you can call the Commission on 1800 517 199

  • You may find it difficult to talk about abuse and discrimination.

    You can get support before you talk to the Commission.

    To find a support service go to the Commission’s website.
