The Redress for Survivors (Historical Child Abuse in Care) (Scotland) Act 2021 requires the Scottish Ministers to name the date a contributor is added to the list, the financial contribution they are making or has agreed to make, note if a contributor is removed from the list, and include the date that this removal takes effect.
Organisations that were responsible for the care of children at the time of the abuse have been asked to participate in Scotland’s Redress Scheme, and to make fair and meaningful financial contributions to redress payments for survivors. This is what survivors said that they wanted in successive consultations.
The purpose of the contributor list is to show the organisations that are eligible for inclusion on the waiver as a result of them making a fair and meaningful contribution to the redress scheme.
The waiver applies to the organisation and not to the individual care settings. If you are unsure of the organisation with responsibility for a particular care setting we will do our best to advise – contact 0808 196 1502.
We also publish letters from organisations acknowledging the harm caused by historical child abuse in care settings.
