Redress Scotland stands ready to support survivors as scheme opens for applications

Redress Scotland is pleased to announce that from today (9 December) the scheme to provide survivors of historical child abuse in care in Scotland with financial redress is open for applications.

Redress Scotland launches service with new website

Redress Scotland, the new body responsible for making decisions about applications to Scotland’s redress scheme, is up and running as of December 2021. Survivors of historic abuse in care can now apply for redress to the Scottish Government, with Redress Scotland – a fully independent organisation – assessing and deciding the outcome of each case.

Chief executive appointed

Redress Scotland has appointed Joanna McCreadie as Chief Executive.

Joanna brings a wealth of management experience in the charity sector, and a great track record in stakeholder engagement. She has served with a number of national inspectorates. Having worked in residential care and education for much of her career, she joins Redress Scotland from the Gannochy Trust, which grants around £5 million a year to various charities.
