Transferring the custody of Royal Commission Records

The government will provide $500,000 in 2018-19 to transfer custody of the records of both the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory to the Attorney-General’s Department.


A National Apology to the Victims of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse


The government will provide $1.6 million over two years from 2017-18 to develop and deliver a national apology to the victims of institutional child sexual abuse.


Funding was also set aside in last year’s budget for the proposed National Redress Scheme and for the continued operation of the Knowmore Legal Service which was established to support victims of institutional abuse.
