DACSSA’s Response to Abuse
DACSSA’S RESPONSE TO ABUSE
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.
