‘Abuse Compensation’ is the dedicated website of our specialist sex abuse compensation team.

Our lawyers care passionately about their work on behalf of abuse survivors. They have won a number of notable awards for their work in this field and in 2018 we were honoured to be named by the NSPCC as a ‘Childhood Champion’ corporate partner.

We are recommended by the independent legal directory, the Legal 500 and are members of ACAL, the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.

We offer legal help to survivors of abuse throughout England and Wales, providing a free and completely confidential legal helpline.

Sex abuse compensation claims are conducted on a No Win, No Fee basis, so victims of abuse need never let financial worries prevent them from seeking the justice they are entitled to.

We have an excellent track record in recovering compensation against a range of individuals, employers and institutions such as the church, the scouts, local authorities and public schools.

We can also assist with claims against the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, including reviews and appeals. We have enjoyed a number of notable successes where CICA compensation has been dramatically increased following our involvement; in one case increasing our client’s award from £27,000 to over £180,000.

In many instances abuse may have been carried out several years or even decades earlier. This should not deter you from pursuing a claim and we are experienced in dealing with cases of ‘historic abuse’.

Our lawyers are always happy to have an informal and confidential chat with you on the telephone or answer questions by email. They appreciate that survivors of abuse need to be free to take matters at their own pace and are able to work with you one step at a time.
