If you are affected by the Disability Royal Commission, you can get counselling support. This includes:

  • Support with counselling face-to-face, over the phone and online
  • Referrals to other services for legal support, advocates, financial support, psychological care providers, housing, health, mental health and aged care
  • Access to interpreters or cultural translation services

Here is a short film that gives good information about counselling support for the Disability Royal Commission.
