    Does anyone have any advice of help to offer for survivors of child abuse. Currently being investigated through Australian human rights commission? Not every person wants to tell there story and just be another number, so where do we go from here?

    This is a very deep conversation and certainly, one which we hope would never happen, unfortunately, it does and needs to be eradicated.

    I was always followed back home by someone who lived in the same street at primary school, especially when my twin wasn't with me, thankfully nothing happened and as soon as I mentioned this to Dad, it never occurred again but unsure of what action he did.

    I know this is absolutely nothing compared to what you or others have had to encounter and my heartfelt sympathy.

    I hope you can continue this discussion.

    Geoff.
