Truth Justice and Healing Council Submissions to the Royal Commission

The Royal Commission regularly releases issues and consultation papers on topics of interest to its work and recommendations. Organisations and individuals from across Australia are given the opportunity to provide their opinions and expertise to these issues papers in an open forum. 

The Council has made submissions to all the issues papers after wide consultation with relevant people and bodies within the Catholic community and is among just a handful of institutions to have made submissions on all issues papers.
