Following ongoing discussions between Barnardos Australia and Barnardo’s UK we are pleased to now publicly announce that we will be jointly applying to the Australian Government Redress Scheme. This agreement with Barnardo’s UK ensures that anyone who has ever been in care with us in Australia will have access to the Scheme.
Barnardos Australia will act as agent for Barnardo’s UK in all administrative arrangements for those accessing the Redress Scheme. The processing of our joint organisational application, once lodged with the Scheme, will be subject to the Scheme’s assessment of Application time frames.
If you would like to speak with us directly about our application please contact Barnardos Australia AfterCare on (02) 9218 2300 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The Australian Government Redress Scheme can be contacted directly via their website https://www.nationalredress.gov.au/
Redress Support Services are available to help people understand the Scheme, provide emotional support and guide people through the application process.
