Inspirational Queenslanders: Leneen Forde

‘I have been impressed by the courage of those who came forward, often moved by the hardships they have endured, and saddened that such abuses were somehow permitted to take place.  The accounts that I have heard and read have left a lasting impression and I will never forget them.  For all those who came forward to tell their stories, and to all victims of abuse in institutions, I dedicate this report to you and hope that it will be a small step on the long road to healing and reparation.’
