The Royal Commission of Inquiry is committed to conducting its work with sensitivity and empathy.

Employing people from a diverse range of backgrounds and life experience is vital to helping the Inquiry in its work. 

From time to time the Commission receives applications from people who may have criminal convictions in their past. Given the nature and subject of our work, the Commission considers these on a case-by-case basis. 

We know that suffering abuse in care can have consequences across a person’s life. Sometimes the effects are crime and incarceration.

Because of the consequences of abuse in care, many people are unable to break that cycle. Hiring people with previous convictions is one way to change that. 

However, we take our obligations to survivors seriously and aim to do no harm.
