The Royal Commission's offices will be closed from 5:00 pm Thursday 28 March 2024 to 9:00 am Tuesday 2 April 2024 (AEDT). If you are seeking urgent or crisis support please reach out to a crisis service. Crisis support services are available 24/7 during the holiday period.

Consultation papers

The Royal Commission may use consultation papers to collect feedback on specific topics. This gives targeted stakeholders an opportunity to consider issues the Commissioners are looking into and contribute to the work of the Royal Commission. The ideas shared in consultation papers are not necessarily the views shared by the Commissioners, rather they are ideas the Royal Commission would like stakeholders to consider and provide feedback on.

Providing feedback on a consultation paper is voluntary.
