The National Redress Scheme for Survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse
Update 22 May 2018
The National Redress Scheme for Survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse (the Scheme) is due to commence on 1 July 2018. The Victorian government announced its in principle agreement to opt in to the Scheme on 9 March 2018.
The Scheme will provide redress to people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse. Redress will consist of access to psychological counselling, a direct personal response – such as an apology from the responsible institution for people who want it, and a monetary payment. Payments will be assessed on a case-by-case basis, reflecting the severity and impact of the abuse experienced, with a maximum payment of $150,000.
Currently, VMIA insurance policies do not cover redress payments.
However, in light of developments to the progress of the Bills relating to the National Redress Scheme for Survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse through the Commonwealth Parliament, VMIA will review its position on redress payments when the Commonwealth legislation is finalised.
Enquiries relating to the Redress Scheme should be directed to the National Redress Information Line (ph: 1800 146 713). Organisations may also contact their funding body.
