Earlier this week Minda CEO Dr David Panter participated in the Public Hearing 32, Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of People with Disability.
David provided useful insight into a wide range of topics including:
- the extent to which people with disability using disability services have choice and control in the way those services are delivered (including in respect of matters such as where and with whom they live)
- how service providers are implementing supported decision making
- the circumstances in which service users self-advocate and have access to independent advocacy where required, or do both.
- the extent to which service providers give effect to inclusive design principles in all aspects of their services
- and more.
