In this week’s edition of eNews, key themes emerge concerning TruthHealingand Reconciliation with a big dollop of Justice added to the recipe. Read more to find out about the free forum on Wednesday, 4th September being hosted by the Truth, Healing and Reconciliation Taskforce established by the Queensland Government in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. Attend this forum to discover more about learnings from Canada and Australia on institutional child abuse.

Look further down and you find an article about consultation being entered into by the Queensland Government about proposed new legislation aimed at strengthening the State’s child sexual offence laws, also initiated in response to recommendations of the Royal Commission – the big dollop of justice.

You decide if the recipe is right and the ingredients are being added in the right proportions.
