Places where child sex victims are forced to wait
THOUSANDS of survivors of child sex abuse are being kept waiting for compensation a year after the launch of a national redress scheme as more than 80 institutions delay signing on.
Swimming Australia and Tennis NSW are among the organisations that have yet to sign up to the scheme.
More than 4100 applicants are now waiting for redress, while just 229 compensation claims have been paid, according to the latest data.
Survivors cannot receive compensation until the institute they suffered abuse in signs on to the scheme.
It's prompted fresh calls from Labor for a parliamentary committee to oversee the redress scheme.
"We are getting enormous feedback about the need for scrutiny of this scheme and that's what we're really trying to put in place here," Labor's spokeswoman for families and social services Linda Burney told ABC radio today.
"The real concern is that the people that were abused in institutions are getting older, they're getting sicker and they're dying and this is urgent," she said.
The committee could examine ways to pressure institutions to sign on to the scheme, she said.
Survivors have also raised concerns about the amount being paid.
Few have received the maximum payment of $150,000.
The current average payment is about $83,000.
About $19 million has been paid to survivors in total so far and it's estimated up to 60,000 Australians could eventually apply for redress.
More than a dozen organisations have signed on to the scheme since February, when the federal government opted to publish a list naming and shaming institutions that had yet to join.
A number of Scouts organisations, Sydney private school Knox Grammar and the Uniting Church are among the groups that have since signed on.
