Quick Exit

A survivor of abuse may ask a person or people to support them to share their experience of abuse at a private session of the Inquiry.

Survivors will want to be supported in different ways. As a support person your role is to provide the type of support that the survivor would like. The best way to do this is to have a conversation with them about what kind of support they need before, during, and after the session.

This document provides detailed information for support people.
