About the inquiry

All children are vulnerable to sexual abuse in institutional contexts. The Royal Commission looked at institutions’ responses to such abuse. It heard from thousands of people who had been sexually abused as children while in an institution. It also heard from experts, governments, services and other interested people.

Through its inquiry the Royal Commission heard about the sexual abuse of children in institutions covering many decades and knows the risk remains today. To fully examine institutional responses to child sexual abuse and how we can better protect children, the Royal Commission:

• held private sessions – for people to tell their story of abuse in a protected and supportive environment

• held public hearings – to examine institutional responses to child sexual abuse

• built a policy and research program – to increase our understanding of the nature, cause and impact of child sexual abuse and look at ways to improve children’s safety into the future.
