Territories Stolen Generations Redress Scheme

This subject may be very hard to read or talk about. It may bring up difficult feelings and memories. 24/7 Support Services are available.

The Territories Stolen Generations Redress Scheme is being established by the Australian Government to provide support to Stolen Generations survivors in the Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory and Jervis Bay Territory.

The Scheme was announced on 5 August 2021 and will invest $378.6 million over five years for a financial and wellbeing package to support Stolen Generations survivors who were forcibly removed as children from their families, while living in these territories.

The Scheme will run for five years and be administered by the NIAA, with applications opening from 1 March 2022.

The NIAA will establish internal and external advisory boards to guide and monitor the Scheme’s establishment to ensure the Scheme is delivered in a trauma-informed and culturally sensitive manner.

Scheme support services will provide free and confidential, practical and emotional support, legal advice and financial counselling.

Further details will be announced closer to applications opening next year.
