Abuse survivors want findings published

Sky News

A network for people who were raised in orphanages and children’s homes has called on the government to publish without delay recommendations on redress for thousands of abuse survivors.

On Monday the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse will hand over its findings on how to compensate people who were abused as children while they were in care at government and non-government facilities.

It is not known when the government will publish the recommendations.

The recommendations from the commission are a key outcome for the national inquiry, which will run until the end of 2017.

Commission chair Peter McClellan announced last week the August 31 hand-over to the Attorney General’s office.
