Acknowledgement of Final Report of the Royal Commission

15 December 2017

The Salvation Army Australia acknowledges the delivery of the final report of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse to the Federal Parliament.

We do so with an ongoing commitment to helping and healing the survivors.

The Salvation Army looks to the leadership of Australia’s governments to create the National Redress Scheme recommended by the Royal Commission. This recommendation has our support.

We will consider further comment early in 2018 following thorough consideration of the Royal Commission’s final report, including the 189 new recommendations.
