Submission to the Disability Royal Commission in response to the Issues Paper on the impact and responses to the Omicron wave of the COVID-19 pandemic for people with disability
This submission was made on behalf of the Centre of Research Excellence in Disability and Health (CRE-DH) funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council.
The submission was in response to the Issues Paper from the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Exploitation and Neglect against People with Disability (Disability Royal Commission) - ‘The impact of and responses to the Omicron wave of the COVID-19 pandemic for people with disability Issues Paper’ released on 25 March 2022.
Our response reflects on the content of the Issues Paper as well as what has happened since the publication of the paper. We organise our responses around the key issues. We start with an overarching recommendation we believe may circumvent many of the problems we have witnessed during the pandemic for people with disability.
