‭Jewish Care Victoria will fully participate in the National Redress Scheme for people who experienced institutional child sexual abuse.

For non-government organisations, such as Jewish Care, opting-in to the Scheme is voluntary and without legal obligation.

The Scheme, which will run for 10 years beginning on 1 July 2018, is designed to acknowledge harm and provide support to those who experienced sexual abuse in an institutional setting. The needs of eligible victims will be determined on a case-by-case basis and may include access to psychological counselling, direct response from the organisation involved and/or a monetary payment to victims.
