Description

Australia is currently in the midst of an unprecedented emergency with the COVID-19 pandemic, following the summer bushfire crisis. People with disability can be severely affected by emergencies and may be at a higher risk of experiencing violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation at these times. The purpose of this issues paper is to invite information from the public on emergency planning and response.

The Royal Commission encourages responses from individuals and organisations to the issues paper by 17 July 2020, although submissions will also be accepted after that date.
