We will not tolerate the abuse’: NSW appoints ageing and disability commissioner

Published

Robert Fitzgerald AM will investigate allegations of abuse, neglect and exploitation of vulnerable people after being appointed New South Wales’ first ageing and disability commissioner.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the appointment on Saturday, and said Fitzgerald would ensure adults with disability and seniors across NSW were protected.

“We will not tolerate the abuse, neglect and exploitation of our most vulnerable citizens which is why we have introduced a new ageing and disability commissioner,” Berejiklian said.

Fitzgerald served on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and has spent time as productivity commissioner and community and disability services commissioner.

He is also a former president of the Australian Council of Social Service.
