SASS submission on the National Redress Scheme for Institutional Child Sexual Abuse Bill 2018

7 June 2018

SASS recently prepared a submission on the National Redress Scheme for Institutional Child Sexual Abuse Bill 2018. The main  issues we raised within this were the need for survivors to have choice in accessing counselling and psychological care services, the need for the impact of child sexual abuse to be considered in assessing applications from survivors with certain criminal convictions, and the need for survivor representation in the governance of the Scheme.
