Consultation on Financial Redress

Consultation on Financial Redress for Survivors of Abuse in Care

What is it about?

This consultation aims to find out what victims/survivors of abuse in care think about a potential financial compensation/redress scheme for those who experienced care in Scotland.

At the end of the consultation, an options paper will be produced for Scottish Government to consider when making its decision on whether to establish a financial compensation/redress scheme.

The consultation is open to all victims/survivors of historical abuse in care as defined by the Terms of Reference of the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.
