Disability Matters Horsham!

Are you a person with disability, or a supporter, living in Horsham?

Do you or someone you know live in a supported independent living facility or a group home?

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.

Submissions close at the end of the year. Come along to find out how you can access free support to share your story and ideas for making Australia safer and more inclusive.

You'll have a chance to speak with staff from Your Story Disability Legal Support, Rights Information and Advocacy Centre, and the Disability Royal Commission's community engagement and counselling teams.

There are two sessions, which are free to attend and will provide:

  • information about the Disability Royal Commission and the free supports available
  • demonstrations on how to share your story and ideas for change
  • support to start your submission to the Disability Royal Commission
  • access to onsite support, including free legal advice and counselling
  • support to book follow up appointments for free legal, advocacy and counselling support

Refreshments will be provided and all are welcome!

The sessions will include Auslan interpreters and live captions. Please let us know of any accessibility or dietary requirements when you register to get your ticket.
