The Ageing and Disability Commission (ADC) and Official Community Visitor (OCV) 2020-21 Annual Reports have been tabled in NSW Parliament.

In the last financial year, the Ageing and Disability Commission saw a significant increase in calls and reports about abuse, neglect and exploitation of older people and adults with disability in their family, home and community. It delivered a range of community engagement and training activities, and in the midst of COVID-19 restrictions ensured anyone in NSW could still contact us by continuing to offer an uninterrupted service.

The past year has also been a productive one for the OCV scheme. Visitors continued their visits using electronic means such as video-calls and phone calls, and whenever public health orders permitted conducted their usual physical visits.
