The National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse is proud to stand with SNAICC – National Voice for our Children and over 40 esteemed organisations and professionals who strongly reject calls for a Royal Commission into the sexual abuse of Aboriginal children.
“The most effective and immediate action Government can take to make children safe and protect their human rights is to stand up a National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commissioner with legislated power to investigate and make recommendations on issues impacting our children. This will be more effective and more powerful than any Royal Commission. We have been calling for a National Commissioner for many years. We now call for bipartisan support to make this happen,” said the Joint Statement.
