Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse ‐ Support from CASA House

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has been established by the Australian Government to inquire into and report upon institutional responses to instances and allegations of child abuse in Australia. On 11 January, 2013 Her Excellency, Quentin Bryce, Governor-General of Australia, appointed the six commissioners and the associated Terms of Reference. The Commissioners were directed ... to inquire into institutional responses to allegations and incidents of child sexual abuse and related matters ...

The establishment of the Commission followed revelations of child abusers being moved from place to place instead of their abuse and crimes being reported. There were also revelations that adults failed to try and stop further acts of child abuse. The commission will examine the history of educational institutions, religious groups, sporting organisations, state institutions and youth organisations.
