Disability Royal Commission
Scope welcomes the Disability Royal Commission
The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability (DRC or Royal Commission) was established in mid-2019 by the Commonwealth and State and Territory governments.
Scope welcomes the establishment of the Royal Commission because we regard it as another development that helps to advance the rights of people with disability. It is consistent with our own mission to enable each person we support to live as an empowered and equal citizen.
Our approach to the Royal Commission will be consistent with the Scope approach, and our values: See the Person, Do it Together, Do it Right and Do it Better. We will be open, honest, cooperative and assist our customers and their families, staff, donors and members to access support throughout this process.
