Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse


This study builds on the Children’s Safety Study and explores the experiences of young people and their safety in residential care. It aims to understand what young people believe institutions are doing to identify, prevent and respond to sexual abuse and problematic sexual behaviours among young people. The study includes interviews with young people and a workshop with young people and key stakeholders to develop a youth-centred response to sexual abuse.
