The Royal Commission thanks the community for its support and contribution to our work this year.
In 2015, we have conducted 14 public hearings, held more than 1,800 private sessions, released our final reports into redress and civil litigation and Working with Children Checks and published 13 case study reports. More than 9,300 people have called our call centre, more than 6,600 have sent emails and letters, and we have served 1,139 notices to produce.
