Govt to be handed abuse redress plan

Sky News

Recommendations on how to compensate thousands of people who were abused in orphanages and children’s homes across Australia will be sent to the federal government on Monday.

The recommendations from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse are a key outcome for the national inquiry, which will run until the end of 2017.

The recommendations will be made public once they are considered by the Attorney-General’s office but there is no indication how long that will take.

On Sunday CLAN, a key support and advocacy network for care-leavers, called on the government to publish the recommendations without delay.
