Royal Commission looks for improvements in Scouts handling of child sexual abuse -

View in ParlViewView other Segments

The Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse is continuing to re-examine some of the institutions it's scrutinised over recent years to see if they've mended their ways in responding to abuse.

Today, a hearing in Sydney is examining changes at Scouts Australia and Scouts New South Wales since the organisation was the subject of a public inquiry in 2013.

So far, the Commissioners have heard evidence from senior leaders that their systems have improved.
