Redress WA

A $114 million scheme implemented by the Western Australian (WA) government with an aim to “provide a means of redress for all victims of abuse in State Care, including those whose claims would be otherwise statute barred, that is less combative, more practical … and focussed on assisting victims with the healing process.” (WA Cabinet, 3 December 2007). A total of 5,917 applications were received over the life of the program.
