United Voice, the Union for disability support workers, welcomes the announcement of a $527 million funded Royal Commission into violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with a disability.
Members support a detailed examination of all forms of exploitation and abuse, and in particular a detailed examination of the impediments to effective reporting and timely responses to poor conduct.
