- Redress WA Newsletter 3
This newsletter from Redress WA announces that the ex-gratia payments are about to start, and lets people know about an important change to the scheme - psychological and medical assessments will no longer be needed to support applications. Another change that is announced is that people will not be asked to waive their rights to take other legal action when they accept their offer of payment from Redress WA.
