​On Wednesday 27 June 2018, the Western Australian Government announced that it will join the National Redress Scheme.

The Western Australian Government's participation in the National Redress Scheme will recognise Western Australians who have experienced child sexual abuse in institutions, with a view to righting past wrongs and making amends.

Participation in the National Redress Scheme provides Western Australians who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse with a simpler and streamlined alternative to pursuing civil litigation through the courts.
