Understanding the Royal Commission Event

March 20, 2018

Community Industry Group was proud to partner with Big Fat Smile to bring this important event to the Illawarra Region on 9 March 2018.

Participants heard from Commissioner Robert Fitzgerald AM, who spent five years as a Commissioner on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, Megan Mitchell, National Children’s Commissioner with the Australian Human Rights Commission, and Steve Kinmond, Deputy Ombudsman & Community and Disability Services Commissioner with Ombudsman NSW.

The full day event gave attendees the opportunity to hear about the findings and recommendations from the Royal commission, to understand the roles of the National Children’s Commissioner and the Deputy Ombudsman, and explore how providers in the region could work together to develop and implement best practice in the protection of children and vulnerable individuals. Attendees had the opportunity to ask questions in many different ways, and the day culminated in a facilitated workshop to explore how we can work together as a region to keep children and families safe.
