Redress Scheme: information for organisations

Information for organisations considering participating in the Redress Scheme for survivors of historical abuse in care in Scotland.

This document is part of a collection


Introduction

This guide provides information on elements of Scotland’s Redress Scheme, as established by the Redress for Survivors (Historical Child Abuse in Care) (Scotland) Act 2021 (“the Act”). This scheme provides financial and non-financial redress to survivors of historical child abuse in care, as part of a national collective endeavour to address the harms of the past.

This information is provided for the assistance of organisations who are considering, or are already, participating in the scheme. The intention is for this information to support organisations to understand what is expected of scheme contributors and to set out the processes that will underpin their involvement in the scheme, which in turn contributes to the delivery of redress to survivors.

Individuals wishing to apply to the redress scheme can do this on mygov.scot.
