The proposed changes, featured in the draft Statutes Amendment (Child Sexual Abuse) Bill 2020, aim to improve our child abuse laws, ensuring stricter controls around reporting suspected abuse and strengthening the criminal justice process to better protect victims.

The proposed changes fall into three categories:

  1. Child sexual abuse offences
  2. Legal proceedings
  3. Sentencing.

Read the Royal Commission’s Criminal Justice Report, the proposed changes and the draft Bill.
