AFI is providing advocacy services for people wishing to engage with the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission).
The Disability Royal Commission wants to hear from the Australian community about experiences of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability.
AFI can help people to tell their story to the Disability Royal Commission by:
- Providing free and independent advocacy support for people with disability, or family members or carers acting on their behalf.
- Finding communication supports, such as interpreters.
- Accessing supports such as legal or financial services.
