The National Apology to Victims and Survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse (National Apology) website will be decommissioned on Monday 2 September 2019.

Information about the National Apology is now available on the website for the Australian Government Response to the Royal Commission. This site also includes a selection of images from the National Apology event held on 22 October 2018 at Parliament House, Canberra, and memorabilia items which are available for order.

The Australian Government Response website is the central resource for survivors and victims of institutional child sexual abuse, their families and supporters, governments, institutions and members of the public. It provides access to key information about what the Australian Government is doing to respond to the recommendations made by the Royal Commission.
