Royal Commission Support Service

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has run for five years from January 2013 until the end of this year. During this time and until June 2018, Anglicare WA can assist anyone who was sexually abused in an institution.

Royal Commission Support Service Closure

Following the end of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the Department of Social Services has extended funding to some Royal Commission Support Services . Unfortunately Anglicare WA was not successful in receiving a funding extension and so this service will be closed from June 30 2018.  

The support services which may be able to assist you after our closure, are:

  • Relationships Australia’s Royal Commission Support Service 08 6164 0255
  • Kimberley Stolen Generation Aboriginal Corporation  (Broome) - 1800 830 338 or 9193 6502
  • Yorgum Aboriginal Corporation - 1800 469 371 or 08 9218 9477

Whilst the WA State Government is yet to decide about its participation in the Commonwealth Redress Scheme , should you require any legal support or information regarding redress please contact knowmore Legal Service on 1800 605 762.
