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.
