Activ’s response to the Employment Issues Paper published online

Activ endorses the Royal Commission’s investigations into promotion of a more inclusive society that supports the independence of people with disability and their right to live free from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.

To support the Royal Commission’s investigations, Activ submitted a response to the Employment Issues Paper, which looks at the experiences of people with disability in employment,  in August 2020.

Activ chose to submit a response to the Royal Commission on behalf of Activ as a whole, and on behalf of Activ’s supported employees to ensure their experiences are included.

Activ has previously communicated and provided a summary of our response,  including in Easy English format, on our website.

Activ’s full response has now been published on the Royal Commission’s website. It is important to note that the case studies provided in our response have been redacted (blacked out). This is to ensure privacy concerns are addressed.

There were 65 responses to the Employment Issues Paper in total. Activ’s positive contribution is referenced in the overview document on page 7.

The overview document summarises responses to the Employment Issues Paper and the document is the first time the Royal Commission has engaged publicly on issues related to supported employment settings. The overview document and other responses can be viewed on the Royal Commission website.

Activ would like to thank all staff members, especially our supported employees, who contributed to the response paper.

Further information about the Royal Commission, including how you can share your experiences, is available on the Royal Commission’s website.

Further Activ statements related to the Royal Commission are available on the Disability Royal Commission section of our website.
