Who are disability care people?
They are people who carefully support a person with a disability.
We welcome you into Disability Care People as a person who cares about people with disability. Sadly, we know that some parents and support workers commit neglect or abuse. In April 2019 the Disability Royal Commission was established in response to widespread reports of violence, neglect and abuse and exploitation of people with disability. Disability Care People shares the aims of the Commission to promote a more inclusive society that supports people with disability to be independent and live in safety.
You belong to a community of trust. Your interactions are never abusive.
You enable a vulnerable person to live with the greatest possible independence and vitality.
Whether you are a parent or another family member, or a paid support worker, your caring interaction with the person with a disability makes their day.
