Our redress support program is a program for victim-survivors of historical institutional childhood sexual abuse. Our support workers can support you before, during and after you apply for redress. We can provide rapid access to information about the National Redress Scheme and help identify individual support needs.
Our support workers offer a trauma informed listening ear, clarify the next steps and streamline the process for victim survivors who may benefit from having a support person during the process.
