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

 Support Services

The Royal Commission thanks everyone who came forward and shared their story with the Commission. We understand that discussing experiences of the child protection system or time spent in youth detention can be difficult. This is especially so for people who experienced abuse and are telling their story for the first time.
