Submission To Royal Commission Into Institutional Responses To Child Sexual Abuse Issues Paper 8: Experiences Of Police And Prosecution Responses

June 2015

PWDA have been funded as a Royal Commission Community-Based Support Service by the Department of Social Services to provide individual advocacy to people with disability who are affected by the Royal Commission. As part of this process, we have supported individuals in reporting violence to Police, but also in making complaints about the services they have received from Police when they have previously reported. This submission to Issues Paper 8 seeks to elaborate the difficulties faced by children with disability seeking to report child sexual abuse in an institutional setting.
