Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse

The Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia acknowledges the pain of all those who have suffered abuse in all circumstances, but particularly at the hand of institutions.

 Abuse of children is intolerable wherever it occurs.

The Uniting Church is committed to working openly and transparently with the Royal Commission announced yesterday by the Federal Government.

We hope the Royal Commission will provide an opportunity for healing, justice and reconciliation for all those who have suffered.
