Commission welcomes opening of financial redress scheme for survivors of abuse in care
The Scottish Human Rights Commission welcomes the launch of Redress Scotland, which marks the opening of a financial redress scheme for survivors of historical abuse in care.
Judith Robertson, Chair of the Commission, said:
“The journey towards securing access to justice and remedies for survivors of abuse in care has been long and challenging. Survivors have worked tirelessly for many years to achieve this, and those efforts deserve the greatest recognition. The Commission warmly welcomes this major milestone on that journey and looks forward to the successful implementation of the scheme.”
