We welcome the final report of the Royal Commission
The St John of God Brothers welcome the final report of the Royal Commission. We acknowledge the important work the Commission has undertaken to expose the failures of the past and to help ensure the protection of children now and in the future.
The shocking revelations of the Commission have had a devastating effect on the small and elderly community of Brothers in Australia. But we know that this cannot be measured against the vast pain and suffering of those betrayed while in our care. To them and their families, we repeat our unqualified apology and our commitment to respond with compassion and fairness.
The St John of God Brothers have co-operated fully and openly with the Commission. We will carefully consider the Commission’s final report and its recommendations relevant to us.
