About the Royal Commission

In January 2013, the Federal Government appointed a Royal Commission to investigate institutional responses to child sexual abuse. The Royal Commission has been enquiring into how institutions (private, public or non-government) failed to protect children from sexual abuse. On 15 December 2017 the Royal Commission presented a final report to the Governor-General, detailing the culmination of a five year inquiry into institutional responses to child sexual abuse and related matters. It made recommendations on how to improve laws, policies and practices to prevent and better respond to child sexual abuse in the future.The Final Report and other publications from the Royal Commission are available to read on their website here.

We will continue to provide support and assistance to people who have been affected by the Royal Commission process, including:

  • referral to other support services
