A series of information sessions, organised by People with Disability Australia (PWDA) will be held in Western Australia for people with disability and others affected by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

The sessions will give an overview of the Royal Commission and explain how PWDA can support people with disability, their friends and family, staff working in disability organisations, ex-staff and whistleblowers to engage in the Royal Commission and speak up about abuse they have experienced or witnessed.

Each session is being presented as part of PWDA’s Disability Support for the Royal Commission Project, which offers individual advocacy services to people with disability, as well as policy work and training for people with disability, parents, carers and disability service providers.
