Rely for Disability Care

Better care for all

The Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability has uncovered some appalling incidents of wrongdoing, abuse, misconduct and unethical behaviour. Incidents have occurred across the sector, so what is the root cause and why didn’t people speak up?

Rely helps disability care providers and their employees prevent, detect and respond to issues to support a better standard of care.

50% of adults with a disability experience violence

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.
