National Apology

On 22 October 2018, the Prime Minister, the Hon Scott Morrison MP, delivered the National Apology. On behalf of the Australian Government and all Australians, the Prime Minister apologised to victims and survivors of institutional child sexual abuse, as well as their families, supporters and all those affected by abuse.

While not a specific recommendation of the Royal Commission, the National Apology is an important part of the government’s response to the Royal Commission.

Further information regarding this can be found on the National Apology Consultation website.
