Melbourne Anglican church flags abuse body

AAP logoAAP 22/10/2016

The Anglican diocese of Melbourne will establish an independent body to investigate sexual abuse complaints.

The move comes as part of the church's response to the 2013 Victorian parliamentary inquiry and the royal commission, and is aimed at improving transparency, independence and avenues of redress for victims.

The new complaint body is separate from the diocese and the archbishop, and can work across any number of dioceses, the church said on Saturday.
