Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 6 Hansard (6 June) . . Page.. 2095 ..
We are providing almost $7 million in baseline funding to the Director of Public Prosecutions. This increase comes as the DPP is prosecuting more, and more complicated, cases, including historical sexual assault matters.
Our $14 million commitment to fund the ACT's participation in the national redress scheme is a central part of providing access to justice. The redress scheme will offer psychological counselling, accountability from institutions for abuse through a direct personal response, and financial payments to help survivors of child sexual abuse rebuild their lives.
This government is committed to ensuring that its policies, its legislation and its resources all support access to justice for the whole community.
