The Joint Select Committee on Implementation of the National Redress Scheme (JSC) was set up by the Australian Parliament in September 2019.
The purpose of the JSC is to examine how the Australian Government has responded to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse’s recommendations about redress. This includes hearing about survivors’ experiences with the National Redress Scheme (NRS) and finding out how the Scheme is working — what’s working well, what isn’t and how can it be improved.
All survivors are invited to have their say by making a submission to the JSC. Submissions made before October 30, 2020 will inform the JSC’s next report, due out in January 2021.
knowmore has developed the following resources to support survivors to share their experiences with the JSC:
- A fact sheet providing information about the JSC and explaining how survivors can have their say.
- A submission guide providing tips to support survivors to make a submission (statement) to the JSC and to practice self-care while doing so.
knowmore will continue to share updates about the JSC’s work on our website and through our social media.
More information is also available on the JSC’s website.
