What is the Royal Commission?

This Royal Commission is called the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.

We usually call it the Royal Commission.

We need the Royal Commission because we know that people with disability experience:

  • violence – if someone is hurting you physically
  • abuse – if someone is treating you badly
  • neglect – if someone is not helping you the way they are supposed to help you
  • exploitation – if someone is taking advantage of you

What was Aspect’s response to the Royal Commission?

The Disability Royal Commission sent letters to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) to ask for information.

These letters were called a Notice to Give Information in Writing, and a Notice to Produce (Notices).

The Notices asked Aspect about its work from 1 January 2015 to 13 May 2020.

Aspect wrote back with its answers (response) to the Notices to the Disability Royal Commission on 23 June 2020.
