Rely helps disability care providers and their employees prevent, detect and respond to issues to support a better standard of care.
Research by the Disability Royal Commission reveals 50% of adults with a disability have experienced violence. Other research shows more than 40% of adults with a disability have experienced sexual harassment. Mechanisms that prevent reporting include a lack of adequate reporting systems or poor accessibility for the disabled to those systems.
