The Anglican Diocese of Perth has confirmed it will join the National Redress Scheme.
The diocese has previously expressed its support for an independent National Redress Scheme in line with recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Anglican Diocese of Perth supports the General Synod Standing Committee’s call for the scheme, as legislated, to be truly survivor-focused and consistent with the recommendations of the Royal Commission.
The Anglican Diocese of Perth has been working with the other dioceses and organisations of the Anglican Church of Australia to establish a point of contact for the National Redress Scheme, which is in the process of being established.
The diocese introduced its own formal Redress Scheme in 2004 (Pastoral Care and Assistance Process) and has been working with survivors to provide redress in recognition for the harm that has been done. This includes monetary payments, access to counselling and psychological care and a direct personal response in the form of an apology.
