The Inquiry hopes to identify institutional failings where they are found to exist. They will demand accountability for past institutional failings. They will support victims and survivors to share their experience of sexual abuse. And they state they will make practical recommendations to ensure that children are given the care and protection they need.
The Inquiry is independent of government. It is led by Hon. Lowell Goddard DNZM who is supported by a Panel, a Victims and Survivors Consultative Panel, and other expert advisers.
