Victorian Redress Counselling Service

The Restore Consortium was established in 2018 as a result of the Victorian Governments participation in the National Redress Scheme that was set up following the 2013-2017 Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

Restore is a counselling and cultural healing service for people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse in Victoria, and have accepted an offer of counselling and psychological care from the National Redress Scheme.

Through a central contact point, Restore can link you to one of sixteen organisations in over 120 locations across Victoria that best suits your needs.
