Compliance with the The National Redress Scheme
Creative Partnerships Australia has committed to join The National Redress Scheme.
This means people who were abused in care of our organisation can apply to the scheme for redress.
The National Redress Scheme provides acknowledgement and support to people who experienced institutional child sexual abuse.
It was created in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which estimated that 60,000 people experienced institutional child sexual abuse in Australia.
Redress is an alternative to seeking compensation through the courts.
The National Redress Scheme can provide three things:
- access to counselling;
- a payment; and
- a direct personal response from the institution (e.g. an apology) for people who want it
The scheme started on 1 July 2018 and will run for 10 years.
