In one of three forums in SA, the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect & Exploitation of People with Disability is coming to the Civic Centre, Murray Street, Gawler.

The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect & Exploitation of People with Disability is coming to Gawler on Thursday October 14, from 10 am to 12pm, to will consult people in the Civic Centre, Murray Street, Gawler.

This consultation will give people the opportunity to tell their own story, that of a family member or someone you care for experience with the Disability Sector- in any setting including accommodation, service delivery, education etc.

Anyone interested in attending can register online through Eventbrite and attendees can elect to speak at the forum.

The event is one of just three forums scheduled in South Australia- two in Adelaide on 12 November, and one in Gawler on 14 November.

About this Event

Organisers say the community forums are a key way people with disability and others in the disability community can directly share their personal experiences with the Royal Commission.

The Commission will also have staff present on the day that can be spoken with about experiences one on one.

The community forums will be fully accessible, with Auslan Interpreters and live captioning. For more information, visit the Royal Commission Website at https://disability.royalcommission.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx.

Pre-registration is strongly recommended, as spaces will be limited by venue size.

Hearing directly from people with disability, family and carers, and those working in the disability sector is critical to the work of the Royal Commission. If you have something to tell us but are unable to attend a community forum, please consider making a submission. Submissions are the main way people can tell the Royal Commission about their experiences.
