National Redress Scheme

As part of our commitment to provide a safe environment for all, Firbank Grammar School elected to join the National Redress Scheme. The National Redress Scheme provides redress for people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse. It was created by the Federal Governments in response to the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

The National Redress Scheme was established in July 2018 to acknowledge and recognise the abuse, and to provide an independent means for people to access the support they require to help them move forward.

Firbank Grammar School has a zero tolerance for any behaviour that puts anyone in our School community at risk, including, but not limited to, bullying, sexual harassment or assault.

We are very supportive of the scheme and all it seeks to achieve to acknowledge, assist and care for anyone impacted by sexual abuse in any Australian institution.

For more information, please visit the National Redress Scheme website or call the National Redress Scheme on 1800 737 377. If you would like to contact Firbank Grammar School directly, please do so by emailing the Principal directly at jwilliams@firbank.vic.edu.au.
