DACSSA works and strives to protect people with disability every day, by holding systems accountable and collaborating to improve quality of life. More needs to be done as a community to take steps for responding to disability abuse. It is part of our work to hear concerns of abuse, neglect, violence and exploitation of people with disability.
As individuals, a community and a nation we have an obligation to keep people with disability safe. We live in a world where we shouldn’t wait to instigate change. Both State and Federal Governments, the NDIS, and multiple Australian statutory bodies all have a role and function for preventing abuse, neglect, violence and exploitation of people with disability. All who deserve to receive quality, safe and trustworthy care.
