Sex abuse survivors will give evidence at RC in Brisbane

SURVIVORS of sexual abuse will for the next two weeks give evidence to the Royal Commission in seven private sessions being held in Brisbane.

Although these seven sittings are full, Royal Commission chief Janette Dines said those who want to share their experiences can phone 1800 099 340.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has had more than 2000 phone calls from people in Queensland, with about 60 to tell their story in this round of sessions.

More than 1500 private sessions have already been held across Australia, including 295 in Queensland.

The exact location of the sessions is kept secret to ensure privacy.

To contact the Royal Commission, phone 1800 099 340 or email contact@childabuseroyalcommission.gov.au
