Case Study 33: The Salvation Army children's Homes, Australia Southern Territory was a public hearing of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, held in Adelaide in October 2015. It inquired into the experiences of former child residents at Eden Park Boys' Home in South Australia, Box Hill Boys' Home and Bayswater Boys' Home in Victoria, and The Salvation Army Boys' Home, Nedlands, in Western Australia. During the hearings evidence was heard from former residents of Eden Park, Box Hill, Bayswater and Nedlands, as well as from representatives and former employees of the Salvation Army and government offices.
In July 2016, the Royal Commission subsequently published its findings in the Report of Case Study No. 33: The response of The Salvation Army (Southern Territory) to allegations of child sexual abuse at children's homes that it operated. The webpage for Case Study 33 published on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse website includes the final report for Case Study 33, transcriptions of each day of the public hearing, exhibits and submissions related to the Case Study, and a list of witnesses who gave evidence during the Case Study.
