Royal Commission

Royal Commission to investigate Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Whilst this Commission started in January 2013, Zig Zag is aware that the first of the Commission’s Brisbane based Public Hearings starts on the 17th February 2014. As a result, young women may hear/see things in the media that get them thinking about their own experiences. If you are a young woman who wants to talk with someone about the Commission and something that it connects to in your life, remember you are very welcome to talk with a Zig Zag worker.
