Church Abuse

Over the past 100 years churches have played a critical role in the care and welfare of children. Churches have run schools and priests and other church leaders have held positions of authority within our communities. The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse found that many churches failed in their duties in protecting children from child sexual abuse.

At Artemis Legal we have assisted many survivors of church related child sexual abuse including the following:

  • Church run schools

  • Church run homes or orphanages

  • Sunday school

  • Priest in the community

  • Church run camps

  • Altar boy abuse

If you have been abused in any circumstances connected to a church, then we may be able to help you. Contact us for a free consultation and Know Where You Stand.

Below are links to various churches and schools to gather with links to specific schools and institutions or archdiocese is with a history of abuse.

 What our clients say about us:

I would like to express my thanks to you and the rest of the Artemis team for not giving up on my case. No matter the outcome I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me for someone to not only believe me but to also fight for me. It has never occurred to me that my case was very important or significant.
— Mark, 47
For me, I walk away from this experience with a genuine sense of optimism and resilience. I now have hope and a purpose that I have not ever felt before in my lifetime. Whilst therapy and professional assistance is assisting greatly, it is because of your determination to see justice for me and that fact that I felt that I had your support “in my corner”, enabled me to have the courage to pursue this case to its end.
— Susan, 55
