Our aim is for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI they work in and whatever their background.

The proposed National Redress Scheme arises out of a commitment by the General Synod of the Church of England to provide redress for victims and survivors of abuse within the Church. The Scheme is intended to be a helpful, timely, user-friendly and survivor-centred response to victims and survivors.

The aims of the Scheme are:

  • to set up a scheme which will be national, ‘one-stop shop’ for victims and survivors of abuse within the Church
  • to design standardised, user-friendly eligibility criteria and supplementary documents that will help victims and survivors navigate the scheme
  • to recruit and establish a panel to consider the evidence of abuse provided by applicants
  • to provide comprehensive financial compensation, as well as restitution by way of practical support and apology to victims and survivors where appropriate
  • to develop a process allowing applicants to access legal support in submitting their claims if required
  • so far as is practicable, to avoid a formal, legalistic approach to its work
  • to take account of the views of victims and survivors in development of the scheme
