Provides a further response to the final report of the second year review of the National Redress Scheme by amending the

National Redress Scheme for Institutional Child Sexual Abuse Act 2018
to: extend the funder of last resort arrangements to encompass non-defunct institutions that are unable to participate in the scheme, and defunct institutions with which participating jurisdictions do not share responsibility for abuse and there is no parent institution to take responsibility; and provide the scheme operator with specific authority to disclose certain protected information about non-participating institutions.

We acknowledge the traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia and acknowledge their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the elders past, present and emerging.
