Panel Members for Redress Scotland
Scotland is taking steps to face up to failings of the past by establishing a national redress scheme for survivors of historical child abuse in care. To deliver this commitment, the Scottish Government is supporting the creation of a new independent, non-departmental public body called Redress Scotland.
The Deputy First Minister is now looking to appoint up to 12 Panel Members to Redress Scotland. These appointees will be responsible for making decisions over eligibility and the levels of financial redress awarded to survivors. You can find out more about this role by visiting the Public Appointments page on the Scottish Government's website.
This is a rewarding opportunity to contribute to a national collective endeavour, aiming to acknowledge and provide tangible recognition of harm to survivors. The daily remuneration for Panel Members is £390. The closing date for applications is 11:59 on 02 August 2021.
If you have any queries about this post, the new national scheme, or the work of Redress Scotland, please contact Will Tyler-Greig, Head of Implementation and Sponsorship – Redress Scotland, at Scottish Government.
