Join us for a conversation about the impacts that abuse in care has had on many Deaf people
About this event
The Royal Commission is heading to Dunedin | Ōtepoti to engage with a wide range of people on the Abuse in Care inquiry.
We would like to have a meeting with the Deaf community as part of this haerenga.
We invite you to join us on Saturday 2 July from10.00am to 12 noon to discuss:
- What we’ve heard throughout the Abuse in Care inquiry so far.
- What impacts the abuse and neglect has had on Deaf survivors and their families, whānau and wider community
- What needs to change for the future so that people can be safe in care.
There will be wellbeing support provided and this is an accessible space for people. There will be NZSL interpreters present, Brydee Strang and Carmel Webb.
People do not have share their own personal experiences if they don’t want to. We hope to learn about what is important to each community about State and faith-based care of children and adults at risk. This will help inform the recommendations we will make to the Government.
We will try to provide support for any other accessibility needs, so please tell us what you need when you RSVP […]
