Deaf community Te hapori Turi
The Royal Commission worked with members of the Deaf community to create New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) videos about the Inquiry, the work we are doing, and how to engage and share your experience of abuse with us.
Deaf survivors are encouraged to contact the Royal Commission via video interpreting on 0800 222 727 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
