Royal Commission calls for victims from the north coast children’s home

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is calling on former residents of the North Coast Children’s Home, who suffered child sexual abuse, to come forward and tell their story.

Royal Commission CEO Janette Dines said the Royal Commission is in the process of gathering information relevant to this matter, including talking to people who were sexually abused at the North Coast Children’s Home.

“Information shared with the Royal Commission is confidential and will not be shared without the permission of the individual,” said Ms Dines.

The Royal Commission has already received more than 5,500 phone calls and over 1,600 emails relevant to its work.

To speak with the Royal Commission, call 1800 099 340 or email
