Making a submission

Making a submission is the main way to tell your story to the Royal Commission. For example, your, or another person’s experiences of:

  • violence
  • neglect
  • abuse or
  • exploitation. 

Anybody can make a submission—by phone, email or through the Royal Commission’s website. Submissions can be made in different ways – in writing, in pictures, as a video or an audio recording.

Find out more about making a submission to the Royal Commission.

You can also look at our resource “Ideas for preparing your submission” found under our resources tab for ideas to start planning and preparing your submission. 

How long do I have to make a submission?

There's no closing date for submissions to the Royal Commission.

You can make a submission about an issue after a public hearing about that issue.
