Hope Street is actively taking steps to become a participating institution in the National Redress Scheme.
The National Redress Scheme commenced on 1 July 2018 in response to recommendations by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Scheme:
- Acknowledges that many children were sexually abused in Australian institutions;
- Holds institutions accountable for this abuse; and
- Provides support to people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse through access to counselling, a direct personal response from the institution (such as an apology), and/or a redress payment.
We are currently working with the Department of Social Services to fulfil the administrative processes to be declared as a participating institution.
Please see our National Redress Scheme page for further information.
