People with Disability Australia Visit Adelaide

People with Disability Australia will be visiting South Australia from Monday 19th - Friday 23rd October in relation to our work on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Royal Commission is exploring how to keep children safe, and they are encouraging everyone who has a story to tell about child sexual abuse in organisational settings to come forward and share their experience.

Sessions will be held:

Port Augusta, Monday 19th October, 2pm-3.30pm - Click here for more information

Adelaide, Tuesday 20th October, 2pm-3.30pm - Click here for more information

Mount Gambier, Wednesday 21st October, 2.30pm-4pm - Click here for more information

We would appreciate you circulating this information, and printing out the attached posters about the information sessions and putting them up, especially in areas used by people with disability.

We will be running a focus group to consult with people with disability about how safety can be improved for children with disability within organisational settings. This is part of a National research project, and a report from the research will be sent to the Royal Commission. 

If you know anyone who would like to participate in this session, please pass along my contact details to them. The attached blurb provides some additional information about the focus group session, including who we are seeking to hear from, and the compensation that will be made available to those participating.

The focus group will be held Friday 23rd October, 11am-3pm. RSVPs can be sent to me, at meredithl@pwd.org.au. - Click here for more information
