Royal Commission releases short films

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has released five short films showcasing the work of the Royal Commission and encouraging survivors of child sexual abuse in an institution to share their story.

The short films provide in depth information on the work of the Royal Commission, private sessions and witness support services. The films were created for people who have experienced child sexual abuse in an institution, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The purpose of the project is to raise awareness of the Royal Commission within the community and encourage survivors of child sexual abuse to share their story.

The five short films are:

  • A safer future for children – outlining the role of the Royal Commission
  • Share your story – providing information on private sessions
  • Giving evidence at a public hearing – a guide for witnesses
  • A safer future for children: for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Share your story: for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people

The short films are available, with captions, on the Royal Commission website and the Royal Commission's You Tube channel.
