Tania Maxwell MP asks why there is no redress scheme for ALL abused Care Leavers in VIC
Thank you Tania Maxwell MP for bringing this important issue to parliament and asks why the State has not yet provided a redress scheme for care leavers who experienced physical, psychological and emotional abuse while in Victorian orphanages.
“In the absence of commonwealth action, as with other redress Victoria could and should lead the way, so I ask the government: what are you waiting for? Care Leavers recently issued their plea on the steps of this Parliament—and they asked the government to please hear them, please see them and deliver to Care Leavers the recognition that they deserve.”
