Important information on Redress Hearing for Abuse in Care Royal Commission of Inquiry


Your voice will make a difference in shining a light on abuse and neglect and contributing to a better future for state and faith-based care in New Zealand

Have you experienced or do you have information about abuse in faith-based institutions such as a church or religious school between 1950-1999?


Our Faith-based Redress Hearing will run from Monday 23 November to Friday 11 December 2020.


This hearing will focus on the redress processes of the Catholic Church, Anglican Church and the Salvation Army.  If you have made a claim about abuse in any of these institutions, The Abuse in Care Royal Commission of Inquiry would like to hear from you by 21 June 2020 so we can ensure your story is heard.


If you have experienced abuse in other faith-based denominations or institutions (such as a church or religious school), and would like to add your voice to the Royal Commission’s investigation of abuse in Faith-based institutions and redress processes, please contact 0800 222 727 or email or write to us at:
