Royal Commission seeking information on sex abuse in sport

THE Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse would like to hear from anyone with information about child sexual abuse in sporting clubs or associations.

Royal Commission CEO Philip Reed said on Tuesday the commission is tasked with investigating how institutions have responded to child sexual abuse.

"These institutions include sporting clubs and associations," he said.

"Whether you were abused yourself, you know of a child who was, or you have any information about the sexual abuse of a child in a sporting club, we would like to hear from you."

He confirmed that the identity of anyone providing information will be protected and kept confidential.

He said victims and survivors will not be compelled to give evidence.
