7.1.3 Participating lone institutions


For the purposes of the Scheme, a participating lone institution is an institution (either incorporated or unincorporated) that is participating in the Scheme.

An institution that is a lone institution is:

  • a non-government institution, and
  • not a member of a participating group, and
  • not defunct.

Lone institutions that are incorporated, may choose to appoint a representative who is declared by the Minister for Families and Social Services. An unincorporated lone institution must have a representative declared by the Minister.

If a lone institution has a representative, the representative can receive all notices under the Scheme on behalf of the lone institution.
