The Presbyterian Church of Australia in NSW/ ACT has committed to join the National Redress Scheme for people who have experienced historical institutional child sexual abuse.
The PCNSW/ACT has completed the formal Intention To Join the National Redress Scheme statement and submitted it to the National Redress Scheme along with all of the documentation which is required to join the scheme.
The Presbyterian Church is fully committed to the National Redress Scheme and is currently waiting for The National Redress Scheme to work through its processes to bring it on board with the Scheme as soon as is practicable.
The PCNSW/ACT is devoted to supporting victims of historic sexual abuse. Its Breaking the Silence policies are in place and are upheld to ensure that sexual abuse, nor abuse of any kind will not occur in our Churches and institutions today, or ever again.
