TRUTH, JUSTICE AND HEALING COUNCIL
Support for Victims and Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse – The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse is teaching the Church more than ever that victims and survivors need to be supported and encouraged to speak their truth and their voices need to be heard. It will be a painful and traumatic process for many. The Church has and will continue to offer victims and survivors of Church sexual abuse compensation and it will do this without imposing confidentiality conditions. Any past confidentiality agreements will be waived so victims and survivors can tell their stories to the Royal Commission. To learn more about what support is available within the Church and details of non-church support groups and services, please visit www.tjhcouncil.org.au/support/.
