The National Centre welcomes the Tasmanian Government’s final report into its Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in Institutional Settings. Titled “Keeping Children Safe and Rebuilding Trust” the report outlines 191 recommendations, 83 per cent of these (158) will be completed by 1 July 2026, including 48 priority actions to be completed by 1 July 2024.

Included is the development of a detailed Child Sexual Abuse Reform Strategy and Action Plan, in which the National Centre will have a significant role.

“To ensure community feedback underpins this work, we have engaged the National Centre for Action on Child Sexual Abuse to create Tasmanian-specific data. This will enable us to gain further insight into the unique challenges within our state and tailor our responses accordingly.” said Attorney-General Guy Barnett MP.

We look forward to working together with the Tasmanian Government to protect children and young people from future harms.
