National Redress Scheme

The National Redress Scheme was established following recommendations from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, for people who experienced institutional child sexual abuse. It started on 1 July 2019 and applications can be made any time before 30 June 2027.

If you are thinking of making an application for Redress, the Find & Connect web resource holds information about the institutions you were in, and how to apply for any records that may exist about your time in ‘care’.

For more information about Redress, and the free and confidential Redress Support Services, please visit the National Redress Scheme website or call the National Redress Information Line on 1800 737 377.
