$45m fund boost to help victims of child sex abuse
Survivors of child sexual abuse taking part in the current royal commission will be given more support, following a $45 million injection into community-based service providers.
The federal government will on Sunday list 28 support services around the nation that are sharing in the grants, to be used to help people wanting to submit evidence, attend royal commission hearings or cope emotionally with the proceedings.
The money will help those who have been personally affected by child sexual abuse and the families and carers of victims.
