On Monday 22 October 2018, the Prime Minister of Australia, the Hon Scott Morrison MP, will deliver the National Apology to Victims and Survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse at Parliament House in Canberra. The National Apology is a day for survivors, families and supporters.
The Victorian Government will be hosting four local Apology viewing locations, which are for survivors not located in or travelling to Canberra on the day. Survivors and their supporters will be able to come together to share in the Apology in their local communities.
We encourage you to register your interest to attend one of the viewing events so there is adequate support and catering available on the day.
