Redress Scheme Support Service

The National Redress Scheme provides support to people who experienced sexual abuse as children while in the care of an institution. The National Redress Scheme commenced on 1 July 2018 and will run for 10 years.

SASS has been funded to provide state wide support to people seeking information about, contemplating applying to or already applying to the National Redress Scheme.

The Redress Scheme Support Service is a free and confidential support service for people who are seeking information on or wanting to apply to the National Redress Scheme.

Our National Redress Scheme counsellors are available Monday - Friday between 9-5pm. The Redress counsellor will talk with you about your situation, determine what support you need and, if you wish, book an appointment for you or refer you to other appropriate services.
