Commissioner Alastair McEwin AM on accessibility & engagement – First Public Sitting – 16 Sept 2019


Accessibility is also at the heart of
everything we do at this Royal Commission. It will be accessible to all
who seek to engage with it. The Royal Commission will also take proactive
steps to reach out to those in hard-to-reach communities. In particular
those in rural and remote areas and those in closed settings. And the way we
communicate will be premise on the individual needs of how people choose to
communicate. The international disability community’s
mantra is ‘Nothing about us without us’. Your individual stories and experiences
along with your expertise and knowledge about what works will be central to
examining processes that have resulted in systemic failures as well as success.
