Senate Report: Abuse Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disabilities

Dear ADJC Supporters

Please find below the link to the Senate Report on Abuse Neglect and Exploitation - this is a very important report as it details the issues in a comprehensive manner

I am writing in relation to the committee’s inquiry into violence, abuse and neglect against people with disability in institutional and residential settings, including the gender and age‑related dimensions, and the particular situation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with disability, and culturally and linguistically diverse people with disability. The committee tabled its report of the inquiry in the Senate on 25 November 2015.

A copy of the committee’s report can be accessed on the committee’s website via the following link: http://www.aph.gov.au/ParliamentaryBusiness/Committees/Senate/CommunityAffairs/Violenceabuseneglect http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Community_Affairs/Violence_abuse_neglect
