Royal Commission into the Protection and
Detention of Children in the Northern Territory

 Personal stories

The Commission heard a number of personal stories from those most affected by the welfare and detention systems including children, their families and carers.

These stories were extremely valuable in helping the Commission better understand the causes and issues that are affecting children in the Northern Territory, and we acknowledge the time and effort people made in coming forward.
