Enact all abuse recommendations: survivors

Removing time limits that prevent historic child sex abuse victims pursuing civil compensation in Victoria will make little difference by itself, victims say.

The government says it will overhaul the Limitations of Actions Act so organisations can’t “hide” behind time limits or other impediments in the legislation to avoid liability.

The government says it supports in-principle all 15 recommendations from the Victorian parliamentary inquiry into child sex abuse handed down last year, with some already enacted.
