Tasmanian Anglican Church broadens redress scheme for sexual assault victims.

From Tasmania-

The church has announced it will broaden its redress including doubling the cap on payments to $150,000 and including a payment for counselling, assessed on the ongoing impact of the sexual abuse.
It will also offer a separate payment, capped at $2,500, for legal expenses.
The redress is expected to cost the church about $8 million.
Anglican Bishop of Tasmania, the Right Reverend Dr Richard Condie, said he did not expect a significant increase in funds would be needed to meet the church's redress obligations.
