Media Statement on Redress Scheme

Anglican Diocese of Sydney

Media Statement


We welcome the decision of the New South Wales Government to join the Commonwealth Government's Redress Scheme for survivors of child sexual abuse. 

The Diocese of Sydney continues to be committed to meeting its responsibilities towards those who have suffered because of the appalling acts which have been perpetrated on vulnerable children in our care. 

For many years, the Diocese has had a redress policy offering care and assistance for survivors of child sexual abuse and payments continue to be made from that scheme.

The maximum amount available from our scheme is already $150,000 which is in line with the Prime Minister's announcement today.  

The Diocese looks forward to receiving further details of the arrangements of the scheme and working constructively with both State and Federal Governments on this issue.
