Possability welcomes the Disability Royal Commission

 

Possability welcomes the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission). We believe the voices and experiences of people with disability and their loved ones must be heard, as they will help guide Australia towards a more equitable and rights-focused future. These sentiments are consistent with our own vision of a world where everyone has the opportunity to pursue their own potential.
