If you feel more comfortable in doing so, you can apply for a Private session, which allows you to share your experiences with a Royal Commissioner in a confidential setting.
Your identity, and anything you tell us in connection with, or during, a private session is protected from disclosure by law. There are some exceptions to this in very specific circumstances. Please refer to the Royal Commission page for details. You can apply to tell your story directly to one of the Commissioners by following the link on this page also.
DACSSA can assist you to apply for a private session. We can also assist you to prepare for a private session, such as helping to prepare notes for the session, and with preparing a document to submit, to support what you want to say in the session.
