Survivors of institutional child sexual abuse in the Kimberley region who wish to share their story with the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse will be encouraged to come forward this week.

Staff from the Royal Commission are in the region this week.

In its second visit to the Kimberley, Royal Commission staff are meeting with Aboriginal and other community organisations and service providers in Broome and Kununurra from March 31 to April 11.

Royal Commission chief executive Janette Dines said the visit would provide an opportunity to share information about the work of the Royal Commission.

“We strongly encourage all survivors who wish to share their story, particularly in a private session with a Commissioner, to register their interest with the Royal Commission,” Ms Dines said.
