Scouts Australia welcomes the Prime Minister’s announcement of the Royal Commission’s terms of reference and the appointment of six highly regarded Australians as commissioners.
The six commissioners provide the necessary diversity of experience to deliver a meaningful and thorough approach to achieving the Royal Commission Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse’s objective – to effect national changes to the systems which protect children.
Scouts Australia has zero-tolerance for abuse of any kind, and we will work closely with the Commission to share all records and information in order to achieve this crucial objective.
Scouts Australia has established the Royal Commission Advisory Committee, led by Chief Commissioner Reg Williams, that includes representatives from Scouts’ youth, state and territory leadership. For more information please click here.
