Project Axis was established as a wide-ranging inquiry into child- sex offending in Queensland. It aims to contribute to the community' s understanding of child sex offending, its causes and its impact on victims and society, as well as to identify better ways of dealing with the problem. The first volume reported on the nature and extent of child sex offending and the defining characteristics of offenders and their victims. This volume describes the responses of state agencies and community organisations to the problem of child sexual abuse in the community. It aims to identify gaps in the policies, procedures and services in place to respond to complaints and notifications of child sexual abuse.
