National Redress Scheme

The Salesians of Don Bosco have been a participating non-government institution in the National Redress Scheme since May 2019. The declaration can be viewed here.

National Redress Scheme was created in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in Australia. This means people who were abused in the care of the Salesians can apply to the Scheme for redress.
