Abuse survivors and the Catholic Church have welcomed the government's decision to give the child abuse royal commission more time and extra funding.

The government's decision to give an extra $126 million and a two-year extension to the royal commission into child sex abuse will allow more survivors to tell their stories, advocates say. 

Attorney-General George Brandis on Tuesday announced the government would allocate the extra funds needed by the commission to complete its historic inquiry.

Senator Brandis also announced he had been asked to extend the commission's reporting deadline to December 15, 2017.
