The Greens welcome news the Federal Government will provide the $33.4 million as the Commonwealth's contribution to the national redress scheme for victims of institutionalised sexual abuse. This was a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
The $33.4 million is the Federal Government’s contribution for abuse perpetrated in Commonwealth institutions, but the Royal Commission’s recommendations also ask for State contributions for abuse in State ‘care’.

A national redress scheme for victims of institutionalised sexual abuse was a key recommendation of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse.
The Tasmanian Government needs to be an active participant in any national scheme of redress for survivors of child abuse in institutional settings.
