The National Redress Scheme will provide support to people who were sexually abused as children while in the care of an institution.

We are pleased to announce that six major non-government institutions have committed to join the Scheme. The Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, the Salvation Army, YMCA Scouts Australia and the Uniting Church have all announced that they will join the Scheme and provide redress to people sexually abused as children in their care. (my add: WTBTS-JWORG of Australia not interested to help own members)

When each state government or non-government institution joins up, it promises to pay for redress for people who were abused in its care.

The Redress Scheme can provide three things:

  • access to psychological counselling
  • a direct personal response – such as an apology from the responsible institution for people who want it
  • a monetary payment.
