Disability Matters Bendigo!

The Disability Royal Commission is investigating the mistreatment of people with disability and wants to hear from people with lived experience, as well as their family members, friends, carers, advocates and supporters, before the end of the year.

  • Access to onsite support staff to answer your questions about the Disability Royal Commission
  • Support to book follow up appointments for free legal, advocacy and counselling support
