Disability Royal Commission

Some of you might have noticed that VALID was at the Disability Royal Commission this month. CEO Kevin presented with Alan Robertson, and Advocacy Manager Sarah Forbes was there as part of a panel of advocates. The panel talked about how people in group homes should get to choose who they live with, where they live, and should have independent support for decision-making. The panel also told the Commission about the abuse that happens to some people in group homes.
