1.5 Expectations of redress
Expectations of – and needs for – redress vary between individuals, whānau and communities. First and foremost, we have spoken with survivors about what they want and expect in order to set right the tūkino that they have suffered.
But as discussed above, abuse in care has affected far more than individual survivors. It has also had a profound impact on their whānau, whole communities, particularly Māori, Pacific and Deaf and disabled communities, but also Aotearoa New Zealand society as a whole. Survivors and their whānau, advocates, and experts from these communities have also spoken to us about what these communities particularly need and expect in order to put right the tūkino that was caused in care.
