Institutions named in the Royal Commission that have not yet joined the Scheme

Institutions named in the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse (Royal Commission) or named in an application received by the National Redress Scheme (the Scheme) must provide a clear written statement setting out their intention to join the Scheme by no later than 30 June 2020. These institutions will be expected to join as soon as possible, but no later than 31 December 2020. This additional time reflects the maximum time it takes to complete the on-boarding process and recognises the reduced capacity of many institutions due to the coronavirus pandemic.

If by 30 June 2020 an institution has failed to signify their intention to join the Scheme, they will be immediately publicly identified by the Scheme in accordance with Scheme legislation and jurisdictions will consider other appropriate action. This may include financial sanctions applied by state, territory or Commonwealth governments, and changes to an organisation's charitable status. Naming institutions is necessary to ensure that people wanting to access the Scheme know the status of relevant institutions.

It is important that people have access to information about which institutions have joined, or have not yet joined the Scheme. The list published below provides information about institutions named in the Royal Commission that have not yet joined the Scheme. Where an institution has indicated that it will join and given a likely timeframe the timeframe is included in the list.

The publication of this list provides transparency for people who may be thinking about applying to the Scheme.

These institutions were identified as part of the Royal Commission. This does not necessarily mean that the Scheme has received applications identifying all of these institutions. Please note, the list may not specify all names used by an institution. For example, each school or home operated by an institution may not be separately identified.

It is important to note that while this list covers institutions named by the Royal Commission, there are likely to be other institutions, which are not named, where abuse occurred. The Government also expects these institutions to be accountable for this abuse and join the Scheme as soon as possible.

To find out which institutions have already joined the Scheme you can search on the Search for Institutions that have joined the Scheme page. This search includes the local sites of all participating institutions, including, for example, individual schools and homes.
