National redress scheme

Wanslea has joined the National Redress Scheme that supports people who have experienced institutional childhood sexual abuse

The Scheme was created in response to the Royal Commission into Institutionalised Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and is open to applications until June 2028.

We acknowledge the pain and suffering of people who have experienced sexual abuse as children in care and if the harm occurred during time spent with Wanslea, offer our deepest regret that this has happened. Our hope is that participation in the Scheme will go some way to assisting with healing the hurt that has been caused.

We will endeavour to provide records where they exist, financial recompense and support by acting promptly and sensitively to those who apply.

For information about the National Redress Scheme visit or call the National Redress Information Line on 1800 737 377.

The National Redress Scheme provides a list of free and confidential redress support services that are available to support you before, during and after you apply for Redress. Services can provide practical and emotional support, legal advice and financial counselling.
