“The National Redress Scheme, released in 2018, aims to provide compensation for victims of abuse throughout Australia. These victims have suffered at the hands of religious and educational institutions, from churches to schools, orphanages, and foster homes.
However, the National Redress Scheme has made their guidelines difficult to understand, and have placed an unfair cap on compensation for survivors, so even the most traumatised can only claim a maximum of $50,000.
Inside this guide are just a few of the worst offending institutions that Kelso Lawyers has first hand experience with. We have won claims against these institutions on behalf of their victims and have been successful in achieving justice.”
