National Redress Scheme
The National Redress Scheme has been created in response to recommendations by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse which happened in orphanages, Children’s Homes, schools, churches and other religious organisations, sports clubs, hospitals, foster care and other institutions.
Some of the young people who migrated to Australia with the Big Brother Movement were minors at the time and as such the BBM Board of Directors have chosen to join the scheme to ensure BBM can respond to any case of Little Brothers who may have suffered abuse and are seeking redress.
This is an important step for BBM to acknowledge its responsibility to our Little Brothers, our organisational history and our values.
If you have any questions regarding BBM joining the Redress Scheme please contact Henrietta Ardlie, CEO, BBM Youth Support.
