Final Royal Commission submissions on abusive boy's home

THE final submissions on child sexual abuse at a boy's home at Riverview will begin on Monday.

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse will hear oral submissions in Sydney related to the Salvation Army case studies heard in January.

The commission is investigating child sexual abuse at various homes, including the Riverview Training Farm - formerly known as the Endeavour Training Farm.

It is also looking at movement of officers and staff accused of or found to have engaged in child sexual abuse between the homes.

The Salvation Army's processes to identify, investigate, discipline, remove or transfer persons accused of or found to have engaged in child sexual abuse in the homes is also under the microscope.

Seven former Riverview residents were listed to give evidence when the January hearings unfolded.
