Dilworth Redress Programme


Welcome to the Dilworth Redress Programme registration page

To register, you will need to sign up by providing your email and creating a password. Y ou can register online by clicking the “Register Here” tab on the left side panel of the screen. This online registration option is available to all those who wish to register (e.g. if you are an Old Boy, if you are registering on behalf of a deceased Old Boy survivor's estate). This ensures that your registration and details are secure. If you prefer to download a registration form, you can download this PDF document via this link. If you are registering on behalf of a deceased Old Boy survivor's estate and also prefer to download the registration form, please download it via this link. Alternatively, you can call or email the Administrator on 0800 888 744 or administrator@dwredress.org.nz to discuss the registration process and to have the registration form posted or emailed to you. 

After your registration has been received, you will be contacted by the Administrator who will explain the redress process to you and also connect you with a Redress Facilitator. The Facilitator will assist you with completing the application form and assembling all the information, documents or statements that you would like to present to the Redress Panel as part of your individual application. 

The Redress Facilitator is available to travel to meet you at a place and time convenient to you, if needed. For those located outside of Aotearoa-New Zealand, the Redress Facilitators are available via zoom or phone to assist you with your application.

We recognise that participating in the Redress Programme will likely raise a lot of emotions. At times, it may feel stressful and upsetting as you recall and communicate your experiences as part of the redress application process.

We will try to make this as easy as possible for you. You may wish to use statements in your redress application that you have already made to other entities such as to the Dilworth Independent Inquiry, the Police or Royal Commission of Inquiry. This means that you won’t need to retell your experience again, if you don’t want to. Alternatively, should you wish to make a new statement or if this is your first statement, the Redress Facilitators will be able to assist you with this process as part of your application for redress.

There is also support available for you. The Listening Service provides access to free therapeutic counselling before, during and after your participation in the process at assist@dobsupport.com. 



The Redress Programme is committed to managing personal information with sensitivity, care and respect. Your personal information will only be used for the purposes of considering an application for redress and managing the redress processes. 

The third parties we may disclose personal information to are set out in detail in our Privacy Statement, but they include the Dilworth Independent Inquiry (with your consent) to access your prior statement, emergency services if there are concerns about your safety and wellbeing, Dilworth School to access your school file, or Dilworth Trust Board to advise it of the Redress Panel’s decision regarding a redress award in response to your application. 

The Redress Programme will only share information in accordance with our privacy statement. Read the statement and the full information about disclosures at Dilworth Redress website.
