Churches, scouts and others join Redress Scheme

The utility of the Redress Scheme developed as a result of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Sexual Abuse has recently increased following decisions by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Church, the Scouts, the YMCA and the Salvation Army to opt in to the scheme.

This decision means that individuals who suffered sexual abuse while under the care, or by an employer or volunteer working in these organisations will be entitled to apply for compensation under the redress scheme, and without having to go through court proceedings.

Under the redress scheme, survivors can obtain up to $150,000 in compensation.  It is important to obtain legal advice in respect of applications.  Many survivors may be entitled to greater compensation through common law claims.
