Face to face consultations

Face-to-face consultation meetings will take place in all capital cities, as well as in a small number of regional areas over May – July 2018. Equal weight will be given to all views, whether they are provided in a consultation meeting or through the National Apology website.

Victims and survivors have been invited to attend these consultation meetings, mostly though their association to survivor support groups and other support services.

The schedule for these consultations can be viewed on the schedule page.
