The public hearing on the State Response to Civil Redress and Civil Litigation Claims (State Redress Hearing) – due to begin in March – has now been postponed due to COVID-19.

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.

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.


  • Hearings are expected to take place in the next few months with the actual dates and venue to be confirmed soon.
