A Directory for Supporting Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse in Institutions

The Trauma Support Directory has been developed with funding from the Australian Government as part of the National Redress Scheme for survivors of institutional child sexual abuse, and forms part of the psychological counselling component of the scheme.

The National Redress Scheme, which will run for 10 years from 1 July 2018, provides nation-wide support services to people who were sexually abused as children while in the care of an institution. The Trauma Support Website is also available to all consumers requiring psychological support in relation to complex trauma.

For information about the National Redress Scheme including who can apply and the process of application, see Resources in the navigation panel.
