- With great sadness, we have acknowledged that at least one Redress Application has named Society of Sponsors (Time for Kids Incorporated) for historical institutional child sexual abuse.
- Society of Sponsors (Time for Kids Incorporated) as an organisation no longer exists and RASA took over Time for Kids program in 2018. Whilst RASA was not responsible for the program at the time of the claim RASA is choosing to join the National Redress Scheme as recognition that all victims of institutional abuse need an organisation to take responsibility for harm done to them.
- We know organisational denials compound and amplify the negative consequences of the original injury for people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse. Consequently, we think it is important to join the National Redress Scheme even though this occurred before RASA took over the program.
- RASA is committed to contributing to steps for healing and repair wherever possible.
- Having joined the scheme, RASA will now participate in the National Redress Scheme’s request for information processes that are designed to enable people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse to get access to the support they deserve.
