The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability published the Violence and abuse of people with disability at home: issues paper on 2 December 2020.
The issues paper sought information on the violence and abuse people with disability experience in their homes. The paper asked 13 questions, although responses were not limited to those questions, and invited responses from the public.
This document provides a brief summary of what the Commission has been told in the responses to the issues paper. While the purpose of this overview is to outline what has been heard, it is not an authoritative statement on the full contents of those responses. The responses expressed a range of views. This document does not state the position of the Royal Commission on any issues raised.
This document does not summarise what the Commission has been told so far in submissions, community forums, private sessions, public hearings or via research projects that relate to violence and abuse of people with disability at home. However, all information provided to the Royal Commission informs their work. The Royal Commission will continue to consider the topic of violence and abuse of people with disability at home and seek input in a variety of ways.
