Disability Royal Commission

Your story matters

All people with disability and their carers are invited to add their story — big or small — to the national picture.

The Disability Royal Commission was set up to find out more about harmful and unfair treatment of people with disability across Australia.

Share your story with the Royal Commission to highlight these problems to help stop them happening in the future.

The final date for submissions to the Royal Commission is 31 December 2022. If you would like a private session, you need to register before 30 June 2022. Find all the deadlines here.
