Our Values

The Royal Commission is about people, in particular children, young people and vulnerable adults, and their experiences of historical abuse and neglect in State care and in the care of faith-based institutions.  The values of the Royal Commission are:

  • Fairness and balance
  • Independence and determination
  • Transparency
  • Aroha.

Our Vision

Commissioners have also established a vision for the inquiry.  They want to ensure that both the outcome of the inquiry and the process for engaging communities and survivors will transform the way care is provided to the most vulnerable people in our communities.  The Royal Commission’s vision is: 

“Transforming the way we, as a nation, care for children, young people and vulnerable adults in our communities.”
