Review of the National Redress Scheme

The National Redress Scheme for survivors of institutional child sexual abuse was established on 1 July 2018. The Scheme has now been in operation for two years and it is time to review how the Scheme is working for survivors and other stakeholders. The review will be undertaking consultations from July 2020 until September 2020. Consultations will initially be in the form of a submissions process and a survey. 

The review is wide-ranging and will consider matters such as the implementation and operation of the Scheme, survivor experience of the Scheme, access to support services and to counselling and psychological care as well as financial arrangements.  

The review is being undertaken by an independent reviewer who is keen to hear about your experience of the Scheme. In order to improve the Scheme we really need to hear about your experience as a survivor making an application to the Scheme and what happened during and after the application process. 

Further information about how you can contribute to the review will be uploaded to this site as it becomes available.
