As part of our engagement with people from different communities across Aotearoa, the Abuse in Care Royal Commission is holding an online hui in October for people from Rainbow communities and the organisations that support them, to inform our recommendations for the future.
The hui is chance for members of these communities to share their thoughts and ideas on the future of care for young people and adults at risk.
During our Inquiry we have heard from survivors who were institutionalised, medicated and given shock therapy. We’ve gained an understanding of the unique needs of Rainbow survivors. It’s important that we hear from Rainbow communities as we develop our recommendations for the future.
We will not be asking anyone to disclose their experiences of abuse at the hui. We will only be discussing thoughts and ideas for the future of care.
If you feel comfortable and would like to share your own experience, you can contact us outside of this hui. Your voice matters. See our webpage for more information.
