ADC Act Independent Review
What’s this about?
The NSW Government asked Mr Alan Cameron AO to independently review the Ageing and Disability Commissioner Act 2019 (the Act).
The Act was passed in 2019 and established the role of the Ageing and Disability Commissioner to help protect vulnerable adults with disability and older people from abuse, neglect and exploitation.
The independent review is being conducted to determine whether:
- the policy objectives of the Act remain valid; and
- the terms of the Act are still appropriate to help meet those objectives.
Mr Alan Cameron AO seeks input from the community including:
- people with lived experience of ageing and/or disability and their families and carers,
- agencies representing the ageing and/or disability population i.e. peak and advocacy groups,
- agencies representing vulnerable and/or disadvantaged ageing and disability population groups (Aboriginal, CALD, regional/rural/remote, LGBQTI),
- ageing and/or disability community based service providers,
- government agencies who work with or provide support to adults with a disability and/or older people, and
- the broader general public.
