Submission to Royal Commission Consultation Paper on Redress and Civil Litigation

ACWA is committed to working with the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and other agencies to ensure child safe practices in the child protection and out-of-home care sector and secure the commitment of our member agencies toward this end. ACWA responded to the Commission's consultation paper using a 3-lens approach to achieve:

  • Application of learning achieved through insights provided by adult survivors of child sexual abuse;

  • Support for non-government agencies in working with past and current clients;

  • Strengthening systems through policy and practice to prevent future abuse.
