CANBERRA， Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- The Australian government has announced that it will provide substantial monetary assistance to victims of both terrorism and child sex abuse.
George Brandis， Australia's Attorney General (AG)， on Friday announced a Commonwealth Redress scheme for victims of institutional child sex abuse who will be eligible for a one-off payment of up to 114，000 U.S. dollars under the scheme.
"Today's announcement is delivering on the Coalition's commitment to strive to ensure redress is provided for survivors of institutional child sexual abuse across Australia by the responsible institutions，" Christian Porter， Minister for Social Services， said in a media release on Friday.
"This is about institutions making amends and recognizing the harm that has been caused to children in their care."
Brandis said Australia's six states and two territories would be invited to opt-in' to the scheme on the "responsible entity pays" basis recommended by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse.

Brandis said an independent advisory council made up of survivor groups， legal and psychological experts would be established to provide the government with advice on implementing the scheme which will be functional by 2018.
