Final Report of the Youth Sexual Violence and Abuse Steering Committee

Aug 10, 2018

The Queensland Government have released the Final Report of the Youth Sexual Violence and Abuse Steering Committee, alongside the Queensland Government’s Response.

The report found that youth sexual violence and abuse is a state-wide issue, affecting young people in urban, regional and remote communities in Queensland. It also found that communities most affected by youth sexual violence and abuse also experience a higher prevalence of social, economic and intergenerational disadvantage.  Furthermore, the report highlighted that young women and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people are disproportionately affected.
