Abuse in Care Royal Commission update
The next stage of the inquiry into abuse in faith-based institutions will take place with a redress hearing from Monday 23 November to Friday 11 December. This hearing will focus on the redress processes of the Catholic Church, Anglican Church and the Salvation Army. If you have made a claim about abuse in any of these institutions, The Abuse in Care Royal Commission of Inquiry would like to hear from you to ensure your story is heard.
Your information will help the Commission build a picture of what happened to those who made allegations or complaints or took civil proceedings relating to having been abused in faith-based care.
If you have experienced abuse in other faith-based denominations or institutions (such as a church or religious school), and would like to add your voice to the Royal Commission’s investigation of abuse in faith-based institutions and redress processes, please contact 0800 222 727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to the Commission at:
