About the conference

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse has put the criminal justice system under the microscope. This conference will build on the work of the Royal Commission, understand what victims have said about their experiences and explore what can be done to improve processes to ensure agencies make the best possible connection with victims of crime. This conference will be of interest to prosecutors, witness assistance officers and other professionals involved in the provision of advice and support to victims of crime.
