ROYAL COMMISSION

It’s essential your voices are heard.

Woodville would like remind our clients and families that the Royal Commission into Violence, Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation of People with Disability continues to take submissions and to welcome people with disability, their families and supporters to share their stories. This is an important inquiry for the disability sector and it’s essential that your voices are heard.

It is an unfortunate fact that people with disability are more likely than people who do not have a disability to have experienced violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation, and the inquiry aims to understand better the extent of these problems, the contexts in which abuse is likely to occur and the impacts on people with disability and others.

There are number of ways you can contribute.
You can ask for a private session, or provide a submission – which can be in writing, over the phone, in a video or an audio recording.

The Royal Commission will provide interpreters and translators if you need them, and they will also put you in touch with counselling services to support you through any difficult feelings you might be experiencing as a result of contributing to the inquiry.

Our response to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Woodville Alliance cares about the safety, health and wellbeing of our people, clients and communities.

Given the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its declaration by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a pandemic, Woodville Alliance is taking considered action to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of our people, clients, volunteers, guests, suppliers and contractors.

We have had to change the way we run some of our services to help keep our customers and staff safe and healthy. We are doing things such as:

  • Limiting the number of people who come into our centres, offices and group homes.
  • Screening people before they are allowed to enter our premises.
  • Cleaning our centres, offices and homes more often.
  • Making sure customers do not share food, drink, cutlery, plates and cups, equipment and toys.
  • Assessing each activity and program to see if it can be delivered via phone or remotely.
  • Assessing and changing some of our community and group activities to avoid large crowds of people and to follow the rules around social distancing.

Woodville is diligently following up to date advice from the government and NSW Health. For the most up to date information on our COVID practices, please contact us direct.
