Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will deliver a national apology to child sexual abuse survivors, victims and their families on October 22.
The Conservative Party says more needs to be done to stop ongoing abuse around Australia.
The Prime Minister outlined the government’s formal response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse saying the National Redress Scheme will start next month.
He said the commission had revealed shocking abuse of children. “It revealed that for too long the reporting of this abuse was met with indifference and denial by the very adults and institutions who were supposed to protect them.”
Conservatives’ leader Cory Bernardi has told Peta Credlin on Sky News not enough is being done to protect abused children from all walks of life, especially in remote communities.
