The National Redress Scheme provides support to people who experienced institutional child sexual abuse.

The National Redress Scheme is in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Applications can be made any time before 30 June 2027.

The scheme:

  • acknowledges that many children were sexually abused in Australian institutions
  • holds institutions accountable for this abuse, and
  • helps people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse gain access to counselling, a direct personal response, and a redress payment.

The scheme started on 1 July 2018 and will run for 10 years.

For support, to apply, or for any enquiry, please contact the National Redress Scheme on 1800 737 377.

If you need urgent help or support, please contact Lifeline on 13 11 44 or the Queensland Police Service on 000.
