About this website

This website contains material that is sometimes confronting and distressing. Sometimes words or images can cause sadness or distress, or trigger traumatic memories for people, particularly people who have experienced past abuse or childhood trauma.

For some people, these responses can be overwhelming. If you need immediate help or counselling, 24/7 support is available. Redress Support Services are also available to provide advice or support before, during and after you apply for redress.


This website tries to use inclusive, restorative and non-derogatory language. Many of the commonly used words and phrases have shortcomings and we hope that no one feels excluded, misrepresented or offended. Please tell us your feedback about the website and how to improve it.
