Updates interim support scheme


August 2022

The Archbishops’ Council recently amended the Terms of Reference of the Interim Support Scheme.

As a result of the Archbishops’ Council’s decision, the Scheme can now consider applications for professional therapeutic support beyond the original twelve-month period prescribed and until such time as the Redress Scheme is in place.

The updated Terms of Reference and Guidance Notes of the Scheme can be found below.

October 2022

The Terms of Reference of the Interim Support Scheme were reviewed at the September Archbishops' Council meeting. Changes have been agreed to extend financial support beyond the current twelve-month limit, as we have done with therapeutic support. We are currently in the process of rewriting the ToR to reflect this change, and they will be updated on the website in due course.
