The final report of the Royal Commission into Violence Abuse Neglect and Exploitation of people with Disability was released on 29 September 2023.

When welcoming the report’s release, Social Services Minister Amanda Rishworth and National Disability Insurance Scheme and Government Services Minister Bill Shorten announced that a Commonwealth Disability Royal Commission Taskforce would be established to coordinate the Government’s response.

The Department of Social Services is leading the Taskforce.

The Australian Government is committed to working with people with disability to create a safer, more inclusive Australia.


Public consultation about the recommendations of the Disability Royal Commission is now open. You can now have your say by letting us know which recommendations are most important to you and why.

We particularly want to hear from people with disability, but anyone in the community, including individuals and organisations can provide feedback.

Your feedback is important and will inform the Australian Government’s response to the Disability Royal Commission’s final report.

Consultation is open until Friday 19 January 2024.
