The National Redress Scheme

31 May 2018

The Salvation Army Australia will join the National Redress Scheme for the survivors of Institutional Child Sexual Abuse.

The Salvation Army acknowledges the work being done by Federal, State and Territory Governments to create a comprehensive national scheme to meet the needs of survivors.

The Salvation Army has worked constructively with the Federal Government’s task force in response to the Royal Commission’s recommendation and today reaffirms our commitment to the National Redress Scheme.

While parliaments across Australia are yet to finalise their legislative work to enable the scheme, The Salvation Army will move to have its redress office operational as soon as practical after July 1, 2018.

We will update the public as this time approaches.

ENDS
