If you were sexually abused as a child in an Australian institution, like a school, church or sports club, you can share your story to the Royal Commission by providing a written account.

Since 2013, almost 6,000 private sessions have been held and around 1,500 people are currently waiting for a private session. Private sessions allowed survivors to share their stories in person with a Commissioner. Due to the demand, the Royal Commission closed registrations for private sessions on 30 September 2016.

If you don’t wish to, or are unable to provide a written account, you can contact the Royal Commission to discuss how we may support you to share your story.
