Royal Commission into Abuse

The Royal Commission of Inquiry into historic abuse in faith-based care will be holding its redress hearing from Monday 23 November to Friday 11 December 2020.  This hearing will focus on the redress processes of the Catholic Church, Anglican Church and Salvation Army.

If you have already made a claim about abuse in any of these institutions, the Royal Commission would like to hear from you by 21 June 2020 to ensure your experience of seeking redress or justice is heard at this redress hearing.
The Royal Commission would still like to hear from other victims of abuse in faith-based institutions at any time.  

Please contact the Commission on 0800 222 727 or email solicitorassisting@abuseincare.org.nz or write to the Commission at:

Royal Commission of Inquiry
PO Box 10071
The Terrace, Wellington 6143.

We are sorry about this short notice but the Royal Commission’s advice of this deadline, asking it to be circulated,  was only received by the Diocese this week.
