The Anglican Diocese of Tasmania gives thanks for the work of the Royal Commission
into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse for:

  • exposing hidden instances of child sexual abuse in institutions.
  • giving survivors of child sexual abuse an opportunity to be heard.
  • delivering recommendations to make institutions safe.
  • providing a pathway to bring healing to survivors and our nation.

The Anglican Church in Tasmania has responded to the recommendations of the
Commission as they have been delivered.

The policies of the Diocese have been aligned to the National Statement of Principles for
Child Safe Organisations which promote safety, equity, equipping and review.

The processes of screening, training and accreditation within the Diocese have been
updated to help our Churches and Organisations to be safe communities.

The Anglican Bishop of Tasmania, The Right Revd Dr Richard Condie says, “We look
forward to examining the full recommendations of the Royal Commission and working
for justice for survivors and building a safer society.”
