The Federal Minister for Families and Social Services, the Hon. Paul Fletcher MP, today notified the Uniting Church in Australia that the Church has met the requirements to take part in the National Redress Scheme for people who experienced institutional child sexual abuse.

A number of our founding agencies provided out-of-home care and still do today. Anyone who was in their care as a child and experienced sexual abuse can apply to the National Redress Scheme, either via their website or by calling the toll-free number 1800 737 377.

Here at Uniting Vic.Tas, we offer a Heritage Service which supports people who spent some or all of their childhood in out-of-home care services provided by the Uniting Church in Victoria, as well as their family members.
