We provide a free and confidential support service for people who are considering applying or want to apply for the National Redress Scheme. If you experienced sexual abuse as a child under 18 years in any institution or school (including sports club, scouts, orphanages, foster care, religious organisation, group home or club), and would like to apply for redress, we are here to assist.


In July 2018, the Commonwealth Government established a National Redress Scheme to provide support to people who were sexually abused as children while in care of an institution. The establishment of the Redress Scheme was a recommendation from the findings of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Redress Scheme is one way state and territory Governments, churches, charities and other non-government organisations are working to acknowledge the harm caused and provide support to people who experienced institutional child sexual abuse. The Redress Scheme commenced on the 1st of July 2018 and run for 10 years. The National Redress Scheme is an alternative to seeking compensation through the courts.
