National Redress Scheme
Following from the 2017 Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the Commonwealth Government has set up the National Redress Scheme.
The Scheme will provide support to Australian citizens and permanent residents who were sexually abused as children (aged under 18) while in the care of participating governments and institutions at any time before the Scheme starts. Each state and territory, as well as non-government bodies, has the option to participate in the Scheme.
The starting date for the Scheme is expected to be 1 July 2018. The exact start date, and what the Scheme will cover, will be set by the legislation creating the Scheme. It is expected that the Scheme will run for 10 years.
The National Redress Scheme is an alternative to applying for compensation through the courts. You will not be able to apply to both the courts and the Scheme for the same events.

Regional Alliance West's mission is:
Our Vision & Values
To be recognised nationally as a leading community development based organisation in our field. Several international projects are implemented based on the “RAW model” of operation.
The achievement of our vision must not compromise our core ideology at any stage.
Our decisions and operations will be driven by measurement against the ultimate benefits to our customers. Our focus on our customers should not be compromised by any environmental factor.
We ultimately believe that of every customer that the organisation comes into contact with, his or her ability to grow and develop can be improved.
We believe that the success of the organisation is firmly in the hands of our people. Our ability to achieve our vision depends upon attracting, developing and encouraging people who are committed to carrying out this task whilst achieving their own personal and family goals in life. We support flexibility and an ability to drive change
Open, honest, congruent, and timely communication with stakeholders is central to the maintenance of credibility. Our actions will be based upon the highest ethical standards, living up to our responsibilities, obligations and commitments.
We are committed to a culture of trust, professionalism, competence, shared knowledge, and service excellence.
We take personal responsibility to drive constructive change, and support our team members in developing lateral solutions to the problems facing our customers. All members are encouraged to take educated, and calculated risks and to question and challenge existing processes and practices.
A continuous and consistent pursuit of excellence in service delivery, and human and community relations is aspired to.
Life long learning
Personal and professional development is an ongoing process. We believe that each individual within the organization has a responsibility to proactively seek to better themselves, and that the organization has an equal responsibility to assist that endeavour.
With success comes responsibility of leadership.
Respect for all people is not to be compromised. We encourage the giving and receiving of constructive feedback, with due consideration for views and beliefs differing from our own. We seek to develop and nurture trust.
