“Victims and survivors of institutional childhood abuse endured pain, suffering and trauma at the most vulnerable time of their lives – the time when they most needed love, care and protection. A time when they were children.

“It has been a long hard road for victims and survivors. Many have seen fellow survivors, friends and family, pass on this journey for justice and acknowledgement. Many others continue to live with the trauma of their childhood experiences.

“I feel honoured and privileged to have been appointed Commissioner for Survivors of Institutional Childhood Abuse. I am acutely aware of the responsibilities of the role. My vision for the Office of Commissioner for Survivors of Institutional Childhood Abuse is one where we work to promote the interests of victims and survivors, not just through those measures set out in law to address the wrongs of the past, but also those that address the needs of victims and survivors now and in the future.”
