Disability Royal Commission

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

A Royal Commission is the highest level of public inquiry in Australia. Its main functions are to investigate an issue, produce a report and make recommendations to the government.

The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability was established in April 2019. The exact scope and issues to be considered are set out in the Terms of Reference.


Endeavour Foundation welcomes the Royal Commission because it will provide a platform for people with disability to be heard.

We are committed to engaging openly and transparently with the Royal Commission and will respond to any requests for information. We also seek to contribute to discussions and will support customers to do the same.

We will listen and learn during the Royal Commission and take up opportunities to better improve our support and services to people with disability.
