Relationships Australia Victoria is funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services to provide Redress Support Services – free and confidential support for anyone making, or considering making, an application through the National Redress Scheme.

The National Redress Scheme is the Australian Government’s response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Scheme offers acknowledgement and support to people who:

  • experienced institutional child sexual abuse before 1 July 2018, and
  • were born before 30 June 2010, and
  • are Australian citizens or permanent residents.

If you’re deciding whether to apply for the National Redress Scheme, or going through the process, our Redress Support Services can provide practical and emotional support including:

  • providing information about the National Redress Scheme and answering your questions
  • assistance to complete a National Redress Scheme application, including writing your
    victim impact statement, and support and advocacy throughout the process
  • supportive counselling to help you to manage the emotional impact of the application process
  • practical and emotional support for your family and loved ones
  • connections with, and referrals to, other services, including legal and financial counselling services, and personal or family therapy
  • assistance to understand the outcome of your National Redress Scheme application.
