Disability Royal Commission

The following statement may be attributed to an Endeavour Foundation spokesperson.

Endeavour Foundation welcomes the release of the final report from the Royal Commission into the Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.

We are grateful for the important work of the Commission in providing a platform for people with a disability to be heard.

Throughout this time, we have been distressed to hear about the experiences of people who have endured violence, abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

We are immensely grateful for their courage in speaking out and demanding an end to these grievous injustices - now and for future generations.

Endeavour Foundation reaffirms that we all have a role to play in ensuring that Australia is a nation where people with a disability live free from violence, abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

While we have monitored the progress of the Commission and implemented improvements throughout, we will be carefully considering the recommendations, especially in relation to best practice and ways to amplify the voices of people with a disability within our organisation.

Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability

We support the aim of the Disability Royal Commission to pave the way for a more inclusive and just society, upholding the human rights and independence of people with disability, and ensuring they can live free from violence, abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

The Final report of the Disability Royal Commission is available on the Disability Royal Commission website and in the following formats:

People with disability and their human rights are at the heart of everything we do. We partner with people to feel empowered and lead full and purposeful lives where they can exercise choice and control.

Our values, culture, processes and practices prioritise safe and high-quality individualised services for the people we support. We strive to continually improve the quality and safety of our services and provide opportunities for open, two-way communication with the people we support, their families and carers.

Our commitment to the people we support is outlined in our ‘Quality, safety and you’ booklet and Easy Read below and is supported by our rigorous feedback and complaints process.

We take all allegations of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation seriously. We pledge to respond with the utmost honesty, empathy and support to facilitate the pursuit of justice.

We encourage anyone with concerns regarding our services to people we support to use our feedback and complaints process and the channels available through the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission.
