Counselling and Support for people affected by the Disability Royal Commission

We can provide free counselling and support for people impacted by the Royal Commission, including people with a disability, their families, carers or support workers.

The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability started in April 2019. The Royal Commission will inquire into instances of violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation of people with disability across Australia.

 How can we help?

  • Free counselling and support (face to face, phone or other ways of communicating)
  • Assistance preparing a submission to the Disability Royal Commission
  • Supported referrals to advocacy or legal advice
  • Case management
  • Referral to other services where needed
  • Work with interpreters

The ‘Safe to Share’ animation was created to help raise awareness on the free counselling and support available to people living with a disability, families and carers and anyone else affected by the Disability Royal Commission. The animation was produced by the talented Dan Hartney from The Planet of Animation and features local voice-over stars. The voice-over actors had no prior acting experience but did a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life and, coincidentally, looking like the characters themselves! Keep an eye out for the animation on television and other platforms across the Northern Territory.

Any person with a disability, their families or carers, staff or any other person who has experienced abuse, neglect, violence or
exploitation against people with a disability.

This is a free service.

Face-to-face sessions are available in Darwin and Alice Springs.
