Mr Milligan asked the Minister for Human Rights, upon notice, on 11 February 2022:
(1) Given that the annual report for the Human Rights Commission reports an 82 percent increase of the number of complaints received by the Commissioner in the last four years, that’s more than 20 percent a year, what is the total number of complaints relating to disability received by the Discrimination, Health Services, Disability and Community Services Commissioner for each year for the past four years from 2016-17 to 2020 21.
(2) How many of the complaints, referred to in part (1), related to (a) Disability discrimination, (b) those living with disability and the Health Services, (c) to those living with disability and employment, (d) those living with disability and housing, (e) those living with disability and access to education, (f) those living with disability and ACT government services, not including health.
(3) How many of the complaints, referred to in part (1), were successfully resolved.
Ms Cheyne: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) The Discrimination, Health Services, Disability & Community Services Commissioner (the Commissioner) can receive complaints relating to people with a disability in a number of complaint jurisdictions. People do not need to disclose a disability to access the complaint process other than where it is relevant to the jurisdiction eg where making a complaint about alleged disability discrimination or vilification on the basis of disability
Complaints about disability related issues can be handled by other agencies in the ACT including the Human Services Registrar (in the Community Services Directorate), the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission which commenced operation in the ACT on 1 July 2019, the office of the Senior Practitioner and the Australian Human Rights Commission.
