Submission on a COVID-19 Royal Commission

Anglicare Australia believes a Royal Commission would provide a crucial opportunity to learn from the handling of the pandemic at every level of Government and apply those findings to the ongoing management of COVID-19 and any future pandemics. This submission makes suggestions on the terms of reference for a Royal Commission, which have been developed by drawing on our insights from working with those most vulnerable to the health and economic impacts of the pandemic, and experience operating essential services such as aged care, childcare, disability services, and emergency relief.
