The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has launched a national public awareness campaign calling for more people to come forward to share their story.
Royal Commission Chief Executive Officer Janette Dines said that while more than 1,400 people have already shared their story with a Royal Commissioner, there may be many more people who are yet to make contact with the Royal Commission.
“A recent telephone survey found that while there is widespread community awareness of the Royal Commission, many people are still unsure about what the Royal Commission can look into,” Ms Dines said.
“This campaign is designed to encourage all Australians to find out more about the work of the Royal Commission and how survivors can share their story of child sexual abuse while in the care of an institution.”
The national campaign will feature newspaper, radio and online advertising.
