From the CEO

As one of WA’s largest disability support agencies, providing a safe and respectful environment is at the heart of all that we do.   We welcome the Federal Government’s announcement of a three-year Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.

Whilst the Royal Commission will be based in Brisbane, it will take hearings all around Australia and the $527.9 million allocated will include enabling appropriate supports for people to participate which is essential.

The Honourable Ronald Sackville AO QC will be the Chair of the Royal Commission. Justice Sackville will be supported by five other Royal Commissioners; Ms Barbara Bennett PSM, Dr Rhonda Galbally AC, Ms Andrea Mason OAM, Mr Alastair McEwin and the Honourable John Ryan AM.

The final report will be submitted by the end of April 2022, with an interim report to be provided by the end of October of 2020.

For more detailed information about the Royal Commission please read the documents listed below:

We will continue to update our community on the Royal Commission through our communications channels.  Please know, we are always keen to have feedback on our services and therefore encourage you to contact us should you have any personal concerns by calling me on 9474 3303 or contacting our Complaints Officer via email – complaints@identitywa.com.au

Kind regards

Marina Re, Chief Executive Officer
