Dave Sharp insists that little is being done to promote it – and he will spend the next few days in several towns talking to people whose lives have been ruined by his abuse.
Dave was one of the young boys who experienced the horrors of life at a former Falkland St. Ninen residential school.
In 2017, the Christian Brothers Religious Order, which runs the school, was ordered to apologize for “administrative failures” that allowed pedophile priests to abuse the boy.
The school closed in 1983, but was highlighted in the Scottish Child Abuse Inquiry.

A total of 35 alumni came forward with allegations against five staff members
Two former teachers were sentenced to a total of 15 years in prison after being found guilty of sexually abusing boys in their care.
Dave spent 40 years fighting for the Catholic Order.
This week he returned to the kingdom from his home in Northampton to find out how much is known locally about the Redress Scotland scheme.
The Scottish Government has said it is committed to providing full funding, but Mr Sharp believes the scheme is going under the radar.
And he wants to know how many Pfaffers know about him during his visits to Glenroths, Leon and Kirk Caldi this week.
Mr Sharp, who runs Charity Safe (Find Everyone) from his base in Northampton, plans to visit food banks and frontline agencies dealing with beverage and drug addiction, mental health and homelessness issues. Are to deal with.
He plans to hand out pamphlets as well as tell his story and listen to the locals.
Mr Sharp said: “I know for a fact that no one has ever heard of the compensation scheme.
“That’s the thing that bothers me the most.
“I am not a politician. I am a victim of child abuse.
“John Sweeney is telling people he has an awareness campaign, but we haven’t seen him. Where is he? It breaks my heart.”
Mr Sharp added: “I want to know how much is known about the scheme. It’s all about raising awareness and letting people know what’s going on in Fife.
“I met three homeless men in Glenroths. All three were sexually abused as children – and none of them knew the name of any charity that could help them. Don’t criticize – they just aren’t properly resourced.
“It would cost around ً 750-7800 million if all the child victims were exposed.
“It’s a huge bill for the Scottish Government.
“We are talking about thousands and thousands of people who are addicted to drugs and live in beds and hostels.
“They have left society, and society has left them.
“I’ll sleep a few hours and go out early in the morning.”
