Abstract

The Inquiry into response by government agencies to complaints of family violence and child abuse in Aboriginal communities was prompted by the coronial inquest into the death of 15-year-old Susan Ann Taylor at the Swan Valley Nyoongar Community in Lockridge, Western Australia in 1999. This report outlines the procedures and findings of the Inquiry which examined issues surrounding the inquest and family violence and child abuse in Aboriginal communities. The Inquiry investigated the responses of government and other agencies to allegations of family violence and child abuse and sought information on the causes and prevalence of such abuse and appropriate solutions. The report includes recommendations and detailed plans for addressing identified issues and concerns.
