REDRESS SUPPORT SERVICE

SACID provides free and confidential support to people with intellectual disability to engage with the National Redress Scheme.

Redress Support Service

SACID’s Redress Support Services can help you before, during and after you apply to the National Redress Scheme.

The National Redress Scheme is a way to support people who experienced child sexual abuse:

  • by an institution
  • while an institution was supposed to be looking after them.
 

SACID’s Redress Support Service ensures that people with intellectual disability are able to access and understand information about the scheme. Our service supports people with intellectual disability through the application process, links them to necessary supports and services, and connects them with opportunities to build their resilience. 

For more information visit these links to the National Redress Scheme website:
