Salvos' treatment of abuse child victims under scrutiny

THE Salvation Army's treatment of homeless child abuse victims will be called into question when the royal commission resumes in Sydney on Tuesday.

The organisation's Endeavour home at Riverview near Ipswich and three other homes in south-east Queensland and Goulburn, NSW will be the focus of the latest round of hearings, which are expected to run for two weeks.

In a statement released following confirmation of the hearings last month, the Salvation Army said it was committed to doing the "right thing" but the young men and women who had been harmed while in their care.

"There are accounts of young lives ruined by abuse which have to be heard," the statement read.

"The Salvation Army is taking a hard look at why we sometimes failed so badly."

The hearings begin at 10am.
