The Royal Commission has examined the extent to which ‘justice for victims’ of institutional child abuse has been, or can be, achieved through previous and current redress processes and civil litigation systems.
This report contains recommendations in relation to the provision of effective redress for survivors through the establishment, funding and operation of a single national redress scheme and the provision of a direct personal response to survivors by institutions. This report also contains recommendations for reforms to civil litigation systems to make civil litigation a more effective means of providing justice for survivors.
The Royal Commission is investigating criminal justice issues (including processes for referral for investigation and prosecution) and support services separately. It will report in relation to them in later reports.
