Institutional abuse in Rockhampton
Maurice Blackburn is helping those who suffered institutional abuse at Neerkol Orphanage claim compensation.
If you are a survivor of institutional abuse that happened between 1950 and 1978 at Neerkol Orphanage, no amount of financial redress can take away the pain caused. However, you may be entitled to compensation that will provide at least some support and acknowledgement of what happened to you.
You are not alone. The scale of the abuse at Neerkol Orphanage, revealed during The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, was horrific and extensive.
Maurice Blackburn Lawyers is currently representing people who lived in the Orphanage as children and can help you seek justice too. Making a legal claim ensures the institution has to acknowledge the appalling abuses that happened behind closed doors for so many years.
