Who are we?
The Disability Royal Commission Legal Service is a free national legal service. It gives information and advice to people who want to tell their story to the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability.
We are independent from the Disability Royal Commission.
We help people with disability, and their families, carers, supporters and advocates.
People with disability (including people engaging on behalf of people with disability) will have priority, in particular those who:
- are Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
- are from a diverse cultural background or speak another language
- identify with LGBTIQ+
- live in institutions (such as care facilities and prison/detention centres).
We can only give legal advice about individual matters.
We can't help organisations (eg advocacy groups, non-government organisations and residential facilities).
We can't help people appearing on behalf of an organisation.
