National Redress Scheme for people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse
The National Redress Scheme provides support to people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse.
The establishment of a National Redress Scheme was recommended by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Scheme is one way Australian governments are working to acknowledge and help people who experienced child sexual abuse.
The Scheme started on 1 July 2018, and will run for 10 years.
Now that the Scheme has launched, more information is available on the National Redress Scheme website.
If you are an institution interested in participating in the Scheme, you can contact email@example.com for more information.
