People with Disability Australia is supporting people with disability who may be affected by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. We are providing individual advocacy to those who are affected, and can support you with deciding whether to participate, and supporting you while you tell your story to the Royal Commission.

We are also running a comprehensive training program across Australia, developing awareness of the sexual and human rights of people with disability. PWDA will also provide the Royal Commission with policy advice regarding the key dynamics which make children with disability vulnerable to sexual abuse in institutional settings.
