In recent years Redress Schemes have become a very important way of providing redress to the survivors of non-recent abuse.
The advantage is that the usual barriers to making a claim, such as limitation, are lifted, and claimants have a chance to seek redress in a less adversarial way which doesn’t involve the courts.
We anticipate that over the next few years Redress Schemes will be the main way survivors will be able to obtain recognition for the abuse they suffered and our team has been at the forefront of many of the developments over the past five years since the Lambeth Children’s Homes Redress Scheme first opened.
A list of current Redress Schemes is set out below :
- Church of England Redress Scheme (currently a pilot scheme)
- Aston Hall Redress Scheme
- Scottish Redress Scheme
- Medomsley Detention Centre Redress Scheme
- Jesus Fellowship Redress Scheme (open until December 2023)
- Michael Studdert Redress Scheme (open until April 2023)
- Islington Support Payment Scheme (open until May 2024)
