Australian Government Progress Update on the Disability Royal Commission

The Australian Government has released a Progress Update on its consideration of the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission) final report.

The Progress Update provides an overview of what processes and consultations the government is undertaking prior to formally responding to the Royal Commission’s final report by mid-2024.

It also outlines some of the key work already underway to build a safer and more inclusive Australia for people with disability.

The government is carefully considering the Disability Royal Commission’s 222 recommendations, and will continue to consult with people with disability, their families, carers, representative organisations, service providers and the broader community to inform a response that will drive meaningful and lasting change.

A summary of the Progress Update is available in Easy Read, Auslan, Braille and large print.
