In the first phase the Inquiry will hear evidence from survivors of abuse in care about civil claims made against the State. It will also hear from survivors about civil litigation in the courts and before the Human Rights Tribunal. Hearing from people who experienced abuse and neglect in institutions will help us to build a picture of what happened to those who made allegations or complaints or took civil proceedings relating to having been abused in State-based care.

In the second phase of the State Redress Hearing, witnesses for the Crown will give evidence.

The hearing will also be livestreamed on our website when it takes place.
