Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse

The Commissioner for Children and Young People strongly advocates that governments and leaders are ambitious and unflinching in their approach to accepting and implementing the Royal Commission’s recommendations, acknowledging where we need to do better to protect and respond to children and young people and to resource these efforts accordingly. 

The Commissioner has many areas of work in progress directly relevant to the some of the Royal Commissioner recommendations: child safe organisationschild friendly complaints mechanisms, harmful sexual behaviours in children and young peopleoversight of services for children and young people, and advocacy and support.
