As part of our commitment to providing a safe environment for all, MLC has recently signed an agreement to be part of the National Redress Scheme. The National Redress Scheme was established by the Federal Government following the Royal Commission into Institutional Response to Child Sexual Abuse, to provide support to people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse.
As a community, MLC has zero tolerance for any behaviour that puts our students or members of the broader community at risk, including bullying, sexual harassment or assault. Any allegations or safety concerns are treated very seriously and consistently in accordance with our policies and procedures.
MLC has elected to join the National Redress Scheme and is committed to providing acknowledgement, support and care for anyone impacted by sexual abuse at MLC. We are very supportive of the Scheme and are pleased that many schools and institutions have chosen to support this important program.
The Scheme has been established for a 10-year period (from July 2018) to provide a more accessible, less traumatic, fairer and independent means for victims to engage and to help them move forward.
For more information, visit www.nationalredress.gov.au or call the National Redress Scheme line on 1800 737 377.
Anyone who has any concerns should feel comfortable to contact MLC’s Director of Student Wellbeing, Lisa Gatliff on 9274 6333 at the College directly or contact the National Redress Scheme.
