PCNSW Signing Up for National Redress Scheme
PCNSW/ACT General Manager, Jeof Falls, confirmed “the Presbyterian Church in New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory was working through the process of opting-in to the National Redress Scheme.
“Institutions have two years to opt-in to the Scheme, and we are hoping that for us in New South Wales and the ACT this will be finalised over the next few months,’’ he said.
Mr Falls said survivors of historical sexual abuse could also approach the Church directly for redress and could be assured that they will be dealt with in a sensitive and compassionate way.
