Have you experienced challenges such as unfair treatment, discrimination, limited access to education, employment or NDIS support because of your neurological condition?
The Royal Commission was set up in response to reports of mistreatment of people with a disability. It will make recommendations to government to improve laws, policies, structures, and practices to protect people with disability. We encourage people living with Tourette Syndrome and other comorbidities to share your experiences and ideas to promote change within Australian society.
The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability has launched its request for people with disabilities to share their stories. The Royal Commission provides free and confidential support such as lawyers, disability advocates and counsellors to support you when you’re deciding when and how to share their story. Registrations for private sessions close on 30 June 2022. The final date for submissions is 31 December 2022.
You can also access free legal advice through ‘Your Story’ which helps with keeping you legally safe as you share your story.
People living with Tourette Syndrome and their families or supporters who want to share their stories/ideas can access free legal support from Your Story through our national Infoline 1800 771 800 (free call, Monday to Friday) or via the Your Story website
