Report into institutional child sexual abuse reforms

On Friday, 8th April 2022, the Queensland Government tabled its fourth annual report into the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. This report outlines the Queensland Government’s ongoing work to prevent institutional child sexual abuse, protect children and support people with lived experience of child abuse.

The Annual Report shows that 183 of the 317 recommendations directed to the Queensland Government, either in full or in part, by the Royal Commission have been completed and PeakCare was pleased to see amongst the range of important initiatives described in the report, acknowledgement of the ongoing positive contribution the Hope and Healing Framework and Training is having on improving the quality of care provided to children and young people.
