THE ANGLICAN DIOCESE OF TASMANIA

Redress Fund for Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse


The Anglican Church in Tasmania is fully committed to providing restorative justice, recognition and support to survivors of sexual abuse.

 

On 2 June 2018, the Synod (annual meeting of all parish representatives) voted in favour of the establishment of a Redress Fund. This fund will be used to cover claims made against the Anglican Church of Tasmania.

 

The Anglican Church in Tasmania has an estimated liability of around $8 million in new and additional payments to survivors of child sexual abuse. 

 

A number of people within the Anglican community have asked to make voluntary contributions into the Redress Fund. This page has been established to facilitate this.

 

Individuals and Parishes can also contribute voluntarily in these ways:

  • Send a cheque payable to Anglican Diocese of Tasmania to GPO Box 748 Hobart 7001 (enclose your name, address and purpose of contribution for a receipt)
  • Direct transfer to Anglican Diocese of Tasmania at
