For over 167 years, OzChild has been committed to the protection of
Australia’s most vulnerable children and families.

Our vision is to ensure all children and young people
are safe, respected, nurtured and reach their full potential.


In July 2018 the government introduced the National Redress Scheme in response to recommendations by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Scheme started on 1 July 2018 and will run for 10 years.

OzChild welcomes the scheme and recognises the help it will provide to people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse to gain access to compensation, along with counselling and psychological services.

OzChild is currently working through the process of entry into the Scheme. We hope to finalise this in early 2019.

For any individual questions, please email redress@ozchild.org.au
