Its vision is for a Queensland where children are protected, safe and supported to reach their full potential.

The Truth, Healing and Reconciliation Taskforce (the Taskforce) was established by the Queensland Government on 3 September 2018. The Taskforce will provide for the views of those who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse, support services and organisations in advice to the Queensland Government on implementing the reforms arising from the Royal Commission.

The Taskforce also provides advice on a grants program for activities that contribute to truth, healing and reconciling histories.

Its purpose is to raise awareness of institutional child sexual abuse and its impacts, implement changes that will protect children, and provide a holistic response to support, justice and healing for people with lived experience across Queensland.
