Redress Scotland’s Response:

Redress Scotland are an independent body responsible for making decisions on applications for redress. We then tell the Scottish Government the outcome of the decisions and they are responsible for making financial redress payments. As such, Redress Scotland does not hold information on payments that have been made. You may be able to request this information from Scottish Government. Freedom of Information Scottish Government
However, I can advise that, Redress Scotland have to date determined 150 outcomes, out of 221 applications received. Redress Scotland does not measure success in terms of financial payment, instead we measure the number of outcomes determined.

Redress Scotland will publish our first annual report for the 2022-23 financial year. This will be published by September 2023.
